Warning after bricks - and TVs - thrown at train

British Transport Police has issued a stark warning that someone could be killed if vandals continue to throw bricks at trains in Bradford.

Despite previous warnings following a spate of incidents - where bricks were thrown from Dalcross Footbridge - two trains were targeted again on Monday.

Police received reports a brick had been thrown at the 11:48 train service from Manchester Victoria to Selby passing under the bridge.

A short time later the driver of the 11:44 train service from Selby to Wakefield Westgate reported an old television had been thrown from the bridge and had struck the front of the train. Luckily on both occasions no-one was injured and no damage was caused to either of the trains.

Following the incidents that took place over the bank holiday weekend, officer from our Neighbourhood Policing Team have been undertaking high visibility patrols and house to house enquiries in the area to warn people of the dangers of such reckless behaviour, and to try and identify who may be responsible."
