POLICE are appealing for information after a brick was thrown at a car on the New Ferry Bypass.

A man in his 50s was driving along the New Ferry Bypass on Tuesday, October 31 at around 10.30pm when his car was struck with a brick, smashing the windscreen and denting the front of the car.

The driver was not injured but was extremely shaken by the incident.

Patrols attended and a search of the area and enquiries are ongoing to identify those responsible.

Local policing inspector Georgina Minnery, said: "The sheer recklessness and stupidity of throwing items at a car or any vehicle is clear.

"The actions of the offender left the man visibly shaken and he was lucky not to have been injured.

“Throwing an object at a car obviously carries great dangers and I would urge anyone in the community who has information to identify the person responsible to do the right thing and come forward with any information.”

Members of the community with any further information are encouraged to speak with officers in the area or contact police on 101.

Anyone with information who does not wish to speak with us directly can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
