Youngsters reprimanded for risking lives

Four boys have been reprimanded by police after they threw water balloons at drivers near Stansted Airport.

The youngsters were seen throwing water balloons onto the A120 dual carriageway yesterday evening.

Two boys from the Bishop’s Stortford area, aged 10 and 11; and two boys from Harlow, aged 11 and 13, were given police reprimands after admitting their actions had indeed endangered motorists’ lives and could have caused a collision.

Police believe this to have been an isolated incident at the start of the school half-term holidays.
