ANTI-SOCIAL children are being warned to think twice before throwing snowballs after a car wing mirror was smashed in Banwell.

Police in the village issued the alert this week after receiving several calls of complaints from residents.

One unhappy resident claimed to have even seen a group of youths break his car wing mirror when targeting his vehicle parked in East Street.

Village beat officer Dave Eastham said: "We want people to enjoy the snow and have fun but would ask they are tolerant of people around them.

"The snow is turning to ice and that makes for some obvious dangers when throwing snowballs.

"I'd ask people show common sense before throwing balls at people or vehicles."

The smashed wing mirror was one of nine recorded crimes in the parish between December 15 and January 10.

Other incidents include three assaults, a domestic dispute, an arson at Weston Super Range and fraud.
