Stone throwers smash window on HGV lorry – Duffy

Sinn Fein Councillor Sandra Duffy said Councillor Sandra Duffy

These incidents have occurred sporadically on the Madams Bank Road over the past few weeks however on Friday night a brick was thrown at a HGV lorry smashing the window.

This could have caused a serious accident or worse resulted in a fatality. You can only imagine if a large lorry weighing many tonnes went out of control on this road.

We all know that this is a busy thoroughfare for the city with  thousands of vehicles travelling on it every day.

I would appeal to the young people involved to please reflect on your actions and stop throwing stones/ bricks at passing vehicles before a serious accident occurs.
