In the first image the alleged crack smoker was squatting, while preparing the pipe.

The brunette, thought to be aged 30 – 40, was then seen inhaling from the pipe in the second image, with a piece of discarded cling film, normally used to wrap the ‘rocks’, lying next to her handbag.

The photographer posted the images to social media on Friday, writing: ‘Not everyday someone starts smoking crack at the back of your bus.’

The teenager who took the pictures, who asked not to be named, was on his way to meet a friend for lunch.

‘I got on the bus and this woman got on at Haymarket and she looked a bit shifty. She said: “Do you smoke?”’

‘I sort of questioned her. But in the end she was like, “No, do you smoke crack?” She wasn’t offering any, she was just like, “Is it OK?”’

‘I got off at the last stop on Princes Street and she waved at me out of the window.

‘I was disgusted she was smoking crack on a bus, there could be children on that seat.’
