Surrey Police said that they are investigating reports of teenagers throwing rocks off a bridge on the M25 yesterday (April 14).

In a statement released Monday afternoon, Surrey Police said they had received numerous reports of large rocks being thrown from a footbridge over Junction 10 on the M25 near Addlestone.

Surrey Police said that the incidents in question occurred around 6pm on Sunday, and reportedly involved two teenage boys carrying out the acts on a bridge near to Row Town, Addlestone.

Surrey Police said: "We are appealing for witnesses after receiving multiple reports of large rocks being thrown from the footbridge over Junction 10 of the M25 yesterday (14 April).

"The incidents happened at around 5.50pm, where two boys aged approximately 14-years-old are believed to have been throwing rocks from the footbridge onto the motorway. The junction is near to Row Town, Addlestone.

"The boys were both seen wearing black jackets, and one of them was wearing black trousers."

Highways England placed speed restrictions in the immediate area on Sunday evening to help reduce the impact of damage and potential injury for vehicles and occupants if they were struck by objects thrown.

Sergeant Sarah White, of the Runnymede Safer Neighbourhood Team, urged any witnesses to contact Surrey Police, and issued a strong condemnation of the reported behaviour.

Sgt White said: "Multiple cars were damaged by the rocks that were thrown, on this occasion no one was injured as a result of the carelessness of the individuals who were throwing rocks, especially with the speed vehicles travel at on motorways.

"This is an extremely dangerous thing to do, and I would urge parents to impress upon their children the recklessness of throwing objects from bridges and to know where their children are and who they are with, particularly during school holidays.

Sgt White added that there was a high probability that such actions could have resulted in causing serious harm and that the occupants of the four cars that are believed to have been damaged by the rock throwers had been traumatised by what happened.

Sgt White said: "This type of incident can, and has, ended in tragedy and I cannot stress how dangerous it is to throw objects from motorway bridges.

"We have received reports of four damaged cars, and this does reflect the trauma this has caused to the people who were in the vehicles at the time, who thankfully, were not physically injured."
