A police investigation has started after objects were thrown off a bridge and hit a car on the A14 near Newmarket.

It happened near the road's junction with the A142 at around 4:30pm yesterday.

People inside a BMW car reported that the vehicle's windscreen was smashed, and bonnet and roof dented.

The occupants of the car were not hurt, and police do not know what the objects were.

Police officers and the Suffolk Police helicopter have searched the area for the objects and the people responsible but are yet to find either.

Officers want to speak to anyone who may have seen any persons acting suspiciously on any of the bridges over the three-lane stretch this afternoon, or anyone with any information about this incident.

Anybody with information is asked to call Bury St Edmunds Police Station on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.

At the start of December a woman was seriously hurt when concrete blocks were thrown at cars from bridges over the A12 in Essex in two separate incidents.
