Rock-throwing yobs target bus windows in Rainham and Hornchurch

11:45 26 February 2013

Archant

Callous hooligans threw objects at two buses in one night, smashing windows but thankfully injuring no one.

The first incident, which took place at about 8.45pm on Thursday, February 21, saw a rock thrown at the side window of a 103 bus in Dagenham Road, Rainham, shattering it.

And about two hours later, an unknown object was thrown straight through the windscreen of a bus in Minster Way, Hornchurch.

Anyone with information is asked to call Romford CID on 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
