A woman's been hurt in Bournemouth after a large shopping trolley was dropped on her in an underpass.

The incident happened at 7.27pm on January 6 in an underpass on St Paul's Road.

The ``full-size'' shopping trolley hit the 21-year-old woman, from Bournemouth, who was walking through the underpass at the time.

She sustained ``bruising and swelling on her arm'', a spokesman for Dorset Police said.

Pc David Wrigley said: ``This was a mindless act which could have led to a far worse outcome had the trolley hit the victim on the head.

``The incident happened on the busy north west carriageway of the road and there is a strong likelihood a passing motorist may have seen some part of this incident.

``I am appealing to anyone who witnessed the incident or saw someone with a shopping trolley in that area during the relevant time to please contact me. All calls will be treated in strict confidence.''

Anyone with information should contact the force on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
