Appeal following reports of rocks being thrown from footbridge in Winsford

Officers are appealing for information following reports of people throwing rocks from a footbridge above the A54 in Winsford.

At around 8.50pm on Thursday 16 May, officers were driving a marked police vehicle along the A54 Oakmere Road in Winsford, near to the overhead footbridge.

Unknown offenders proceeded to throw rocks from the footbridge, which made impact with the police vehicle and smashed the windscreen, obscuring the driver’s view.

Thankfully, no injuries were caused.

At 4.45pm on Monday 20 May, police received a further report of three youths throwing stones and rocks from the footbridge.

Officers are now appealing for anyone with any information about these incidents to get in touch with them.

They are also keen for anyone with dashcam footage who was in the area around the time of the two incidents to contact them.

Inspector David Levins said:

“This behaviour is incredibly dangerous and puts road users at serious risk.

“Not only can it cause damage to vehicles, but could potentially injure drivers and passengers, as well as cause a road traffic accident on an incredibly busy section of road.

“These incidents are currently isolated, however we are urging parents and carers to talk to their children about the dangers of this kind of behaviour and the serious consequences which could come from it."

If anyone witnesses this type of behaviour, or has any information regarding the two previous incidents, please contact:
