DRIVERS could have been seriously injured or even killed when yobs hurled stones at cars from a Lowestoft bridge, police said this week.

Two cars suffered cracked windows and a third vehicle was left with a dented bonnet when they come under attack as they drove under the footbridge at Bloodmoor Road.

Police spokesman Anne-Marie Breach said: "It was very fortunate that no-one was hurt. It had the potential to cause serious or fatal injuries.

"Anybody contemplating doing something like this needs to realise they could be facing far more serious charges. It could cause the driver to lose control and cause a serious injury.

"If people saw anything or have information about who did this, we would ask them to come forward. The area was quite well lit at the time."

The attacks happened between 7.15pm and 7.30pm on Thursday and police spoke to a group of youths a short time later, but have yet to identify the culprits.

The windscreen of a grey VW Passat was cracked along with the sunroof of a white Vauxhall Astra. A black Vauxhall Astra was left with dents and scratches to its bonnet.

Anyone with information should contact PC Benford Brown at Lowestoft police station on 01986 835300.
