Bricks thrown at moving cars in Leicestershire


Police are trying to trace the people responsible for throwing bricks at moving vehicles in Leicestershire.

Officers received nine reports of vehicles being damaged in the Queniborough, Quorn, Barrow-upon-Soar and Swithland areas on Tuesday.

Two people told police their vehicles were hit by a brick thrown from a passing car. Police said it was lucky no-one was injured.

Leicestershire Police have appealed for witnesses to contact them.

Pc Martine Coleman said: "During two of the incidents a 4x4 vehicle was seen either driving off or driving by the vehicle damaged."

"Luckily no-one was injured during these incidents but it could have quite easily been a different type of investigation."
