Van driver hurt by brick hurled through window

A driver was hurt when a brick was hurled at his van window.

The man was in a stationary white Peugeot van on Mile Cross Road in Highroad Well at 6.35pm on Sunday when the brick came smashing through the window, shattering the glass and injuring the driver’s left hand.

PC James Hemingway said the unprovoked attack could have caused a more serious injury.
