POLICE have warned those responsible for deliberately dropping concrete blocks off a bridge over the A12 that they may face attempted murder charges if caught.
Officers said they are shocked by the stupidity of whoever has been dropping the blocks from a road bridge near Margaretting and Ingatestone.
The most recent incident on September 5 involved a motorist reporting concrete being dropped on the London bound carriageway at about 12.40am. Later debris was found on the carriageway below.
Police are appealing for information from anyone who has seen any suspicious activity on or near any road bridges in the area and would also like to hear from anyone that has lost hardcore or other concrete items from their property.
Police have increased patrols in the area and are treating the incidents with high priority.
Senior Investigating Officer John Quinton said: “We are dedicating resources to these incidents and are determined to find out who is responsible before they kill or seriously injure someone.
