Brownlow Neighbourhood Policing Team are warning of the dangers of placing debris and blocks on the road following an incident in the Westacres area.
On Friday night, 5 September, a motorist was driving past the entrance to Westacres when their vehicle hit breeze blocks and broken glass on the road.
Sergeant Alwyn Peters, Brownlow NPT, said: “It was very fortunate that no one was hurt in this incident. The motorist was informed that young people in the area had placed the blocks on the road. I cannot say strongly enough how dangerous this is. It only takes a chance collision with an object on the road to result in a serious injury road traffic collision, not to mention the cost involved in repairing a car that has been damaged.
“I would like to say thank you to local residents who cleared the debris from the road and ask parents to speak to their children and explain the dangers associated with this type of behaviour.”
