Police investigate Camlough Road car and bus attacks

Police in Newry are appealing for information after a car was damaged and a bus attacked in the Camlough Road area of Newry on Saturday 27th July.

Some time between 11.30 and 11.45am damage a Volkswagen Beetle car was damaged by people believed to be throwing stones from the Parkhead area of the city and a bus was also struck by stone throwers.

Constable John Anderson, Newry and Mourne Response, said, “This incident could have had much more serious consequences. Those who are taking part in this type of activity need to appreciate just how dangerous throwing stones at moving vehicles can be.

“Even a small stone can shatter a windscreen, obstruct the view of the driver and cause a collision that can result in serious injury, or even death.

“I am asking parents to explain to their children the dangers of stone throwing and also the dangers of being so close to such a busy road. Please check on your children, make them check in with you regularly and help us avoid a serious tragedy.”

Police are appealing to anyone who has information in relation to these incidents to contact them in Newry on 0845 600 8000. If you prefer to provide information without giving your details you can contact the independent Crimestoppers charity anonymously on 0800 555 111.
