Children hit van with brick on A12

A van's been hit by a brick thrown by a group of children from a bridge over the A12 in Essex.

It was thrown from the Halstead footbridge near Stanway yesterday afternoon, smashing the van's windscreen. The driver wasn't hurt. Police are still searching for those responsible.

Last month ITV Anglia carried this special investigation which found that more than 400 incidents of throwing missiles onto the regions roads have been reported.
