Police are calling on the public to name youths involving in terrorising motorists on the Camlough Road in Newry.

Youths are constantly launching rocks and stones at passing cars, and have been doing this for a while.

“On Saturday past, a group of approximately 10 youths caused damage to a vehicle, which was struck by a stone that one of this group threw.

“If anyone has the names of these youths please call police on 101 and let us know.
