A furious bus driver orders two female French backpackers off the coach - after they complained about their seats.

The two women had boarded an overnight sleeper bus from Hanoi to Saigon in Vietnam when it stopped part-way through the trip on July 25.

Passengers swapped vehicles but the French girls began arguing about their seats, taking positions on the lower deck instead of those they had booked - telling the driver they were uncomfortable on the second floor.

They tell the driver, named as Dang Thanh Binh, 30, to ‘’stop shouting’’ as he angrily points to order them out of the seats.

But their objections were dismissed by the driver who flew into a rage when they opened a pack of cigarettes and one of them allegedly spat at him.

Footage from onlookers shows the driver throwing the French girls' bags off the bus and having an angry exchange with an Irishman who intervened and threatened to ‘’bite off his nose’’.

The boss, Le Thi My Thao, of the bus company said the driver had been suspended while they investigate.
