Further instances could possibly lead to a serious accident or, even worse, a fatality according to PC Church.He said: "This is a mindless and dangerous practice which must stop before it leads to something very serious happening. Those caught throwing objects from the bridge will be dealt with accordingly."Anyone who has information about the incidents can call PC Church on 01934 638123.
