Concrete thrown from A1 bridge onto passing vehiclesDetective Sergeant Sam Pearson said: “These disgraceful acts of complete recklessness will not be tolerated. They are putting lives in danger and quite frankly I’m shocked that no one has been more seriously injured.

“A team of officers continue to investigate the incidents and I’m urging anyone that has any dashcam footage to give us a call.

“I also want those that are involved to stop and think about how they would feel if a member of their family’s lives were put in unnecessary danger as they drove home.”
