Teenage yobs hurl objects off bridge onto busy dual carriageway below

A shocking picture has emerged of two teenagers 'dropping objects' off a bridge as cars travelled at 50mph on a busy dual carriageway below.

The youngsters are seen leaning over the railings as they watched their projectiles fall onto the busy A500, near Stoke-on-Trent.

The image was posted to social media and shared widely over the weekend.

It is the latest in a string of incident of yobs throwing bricks, rocks and other items at motorists in the local area, Stoke-on-Trent Live reported.

A Staffordshire Police spokesman said: "This kind of behaviour is completely irresponsible and can result in serious consequences.

"Drivers are urged to report any similar incidents as soon as possible, with the location and as much detail as possible.

"Anyone with any information or relevant dash-cam footage is asked to contact police via 101."

Locals have previously told how they have been victims of 'moron' youths hurling objects at them on the A50.

They spoke out after a mum told how her two young daughters were left terrified when a stone hit the car on the A50 as she drove towards Longton, Staffordshire, last April.

It is believed the children were taking aim from Meir Road, behind the Royal British Legion Club in Normacot .

Officers were immediately dispatched to the scene but the youngsters could not be located.

Anyone who spots people throwing objects at cars is urged to call 999 immediately.
