One of the 17-year-olds was pushed from behind and fell to the ground, said a spokesman for Thames Valley Police, which only released details of the incident on Friday.

He was wearing a navy blue polo shirt or T-shirt, blue jeans and white trainers.

The second is white, in his early 20s with short blonde hair.

He was 6ft and slim and wearing a cream-coloured, short-sleeved T-shirt with blue jeans.

The woman with them on the bus was white, slim, 5ft7in, with straight, shoulder-length brown hair, tied in a ponytail.

Anyone with information about the incident should call Pc Lisa Chapman, of Witney police station, on 101 or the confidential Crimestoppers line on 0800 555111.
