Merseyside Police is appealing for information following an incident in which an object was thrown at a car travelling on the New Ferry Bypass, Wirral, on Tuesday 31 October 2017. 

    At around 10.30pm, a report was received that a car travelling on the New Ferry Bypass had been struck with an object, possibly a brick, smashing the windscreen and denting the front of the car. A man in his 50s who was driving the car was not injured but was extremely shaken by the incident. 

    Patrols attended and a search of the area and enquiries are ongoing to identify those responsible. 

    Local Policing Inspector Georgina Minnery, said: "The sheer recklessness and stupidity of throwing items at a car or any vehicle is clear. The actions of the offender left the man visibly shaken and he was lucky not to have been injured. 

    “Throwing an object at a car obviously carries great dangers and I would urge anyone in the community who has information to identify the person responsible to do the right thing and come forward with any information.”

    Members of the community with any further information are encouraged to speak with officers in the area, or contact police on 101. Anyone with information who does not wish to speak with us directly can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
