More motorists lives at risk the day after police announce cautions for youths who attacked cars with bricks
HEAVY objects have been thrown at moving cars yet again and on the same stretch of road just days after police announced they had given youths cautions for doing the same thing.
The objects caused disruption at Broomhall in Worcester on Wednesday, the same road (the A4440) where four vehicles were damaged on June 11.
Police announced on Monday that the youths, one aged 11 and two aged 12, had been given cautions.
The latest incident happened at 7.45pm with police reports describing a group of six youths, boys and girls aged about 12 throwing some ‘heavy objects’ at a passing car. Pressure is now growing on the police to take robust action against the culprits for actions which they have already acknowledged could have caused ‘carnage’.
Meanwhile, a driver and his disabled mum say the youths who threw bricks at their car and other vehicles should face charges of attempted murder rather than being let off with ‘namby pamby’ cautions.
More details and an exclusive interview follow in tomorrow's Worcester News.
