Sick bus driver told girl to flash.
A PERVERTED bus driver forced a teenage girl to flash her breasts as he drove her along a quiet road late at night.
Edward O'Donnell, 33, told the terrified 16-year-old the least she could do was "to get them out" after he took a detour to drop her off.
He refused to open the door for the girl and her 15-year-old friend, who were alone on the bus, until she bared her breasts.
The pervert also struck again the same night when he tried unsuccessfully to force a 20- year-old woman to flash.
O'Donnell, from Mayfield, Midlothian, pleaded guilty to detaining two girls against their will and forcing one to expose herself on November 11 last year.
He also pleaded guilty to making indecent remarks and placing the 20- year-old in a state of fear, and two counts of breach of the peace.
A not guilty plea to sexual assault was accepted.
Haddington Sheriff Court heard how the two teenagers approached O'Donnell in Prestonpans, East Lothian, to ask if he could drive them via Longniddry, East Lothian.
Procurator fiscal Angus Reith told the court: "He made several remarks about the girl's chest.
"She said she wasn't going to expose herself but he said `you're not getting off until you do'."
O'Donnell has since been sacked by bus firm First Bus.
Sheriff David Mackie deferred sentence until next month for reports.
