Ball-bearing fired at workmen Credit: Hampshire Constabulary

Hampshire Police are appealing for witnesses after someone fired at workmen with a 15mm ball bearing.

The men were working on the roundabout at Peel Common, Newgate Lane, Fareham, when they were shot at between 3.15pm and 4pm on Monday 12th October.

This incident could have had serious consequences. Fortunately the ball bearing did not hit any of the workmen but it was very close.

Were you around the area at the time? Did you see what happened or do you know who could be responsible? I would urge anyone with any information to get in touch with us as soon as possible.
