Rock thrown from bridge onto passing car in Cheltenham

Did you see a rock get thrown from Millennium Bridge in Cheltenham last week? It hit a car windscreen - thankfully there wasn't a collision, and no-one was injured.

The incident happened around 2.25pm last Tuesday (April 4) when a rock was thrown by someone on the bridge and landed on the windscreen of a car which was being driven along Honeybourne Way at the time.

It was believed that a teenager who was in a group had thrown the item.

The driver, who was in a black convertible Citreon DS3, was not injured but shaken by what happened.

There were other motorists and members of the public around at the time of the incident, including people who were walking along Millennium Bridge, and may be able to help identify the person who threw the rock.

Officers are now asking anyone who witnessed what happened but hasn't yet spoken to police to make contact.

With this incident taking place during the Easter Holidays and a teenager believed to have been involved, officers are also asking parents to speak to their children to see if they were in the area at the time, and to also warn them of the dangers of this type of behaviour.

Information can be provided to us by completing the online form and quoting incident 265 of April 4.
