Boy, five, hurt by stone near Bangor 'will have scars'

A five-year-old boy who suffered serious facial injuries when a stone was thrown at a car from a bridge will have some scarring, say police.

North Wales Police say he is recovering at home after Thursday's incident on the A55 at Caerhun, near Bangor.

A police spokesperson said he would have some scarring on his face but it would "not be too noticeable".

Officers are appealing for information after the second incident in the same spot in two days.

Police said he was due to see another surgeon later this week.

A driver reported seeing a hooded figure on the bridge at about 1850 GMT before the stone was thrown.

No-one was injured in the earlier incident.

Chief Insp Nigel Harrison said the stone was thrown as the driver passed under the bridge.

It smashed the windscreen before hitting the dashboard and bouncing into the boy's face, causing serious injuries.

Police have appealed for information.
