Police Increase M11 Patrols

13 April 2010, 05:42

Extra police officers are now patrolling parts of the M11 motorway in Cambridgeshire, after a number of rocks were thrown off bridges at drivers.

Last Thursday, an object was thrown at a lorry travelling along the southbound carriageway close to junction 11.

The driver was not hurt, but their windscreen was smashed.

Then just after midnight yesterday, another object was thrown at a lorry on the northbound carriageway.

Again, the vehicle's windscreen was smashed but the driver was unhurt.

Shortly after that, another rock was thrown at a lorry in a similar location.

The 47 year old driver had to be taken to Addenbrooke's Hospital for treatment.

More police officers are now patrolling the motorway.

Detective Inspector Matt Potts said: "These are extremely dangerous acts that could result in someone being seriously injured of even killed.

I would like to hear from anyone who has information about these incidents."

Anyone with information is asked to contact DI Potts on 0345 456 456 4 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
