Teens damage multiple cars in M25 rock throwing

m25 bridge

Published by Tom Cantoni at 1:38pm 15th April 2019. (Updated at 2:52pm 15th April 2019)

Four cars have been damaged following multiple reports of two teenagers throwing large rocks from a bridge over the M25.

The potentially life-threatening incident was seen by motorists near to junction 11 by Addlestone yesterday evening (April 14).

It led to Highways England enforcing speed restrictions in the area at around 6pm.

The boys, thought to be around 14 years-old, reportedly both wore black jackets. One also wore black trousers.

No one was physically injured, but police say some were left traumatised.

Officers are now appealing for any witnesses to the incident, or motorists who may have beneficial dash cam footage.

Sergeant Sarah White, of the Runnymede Safer Neighbourhood Team, said: 

"This is an extremely dangerous thing to do, and I would urge parents to impress upon their children the recklessness of throwing objects from bridges and to know where their children are and who they are with, particularly during school holidays.

"This type of incident can, and has, ended in tragedy and I cannot stress how dangerous it is to throw objects from motorway bridges."

Anyone with information is asked to contact Surrey Police by calling 101, quoting crime reference number PR/45190038919. You can also report crime on the Surrey Police website.

Alternatively, Crimestoppers can be contacted on 0800 555 111.
