The windscreen of a police car was smashed after youths were reported throwing items of the roof of a building in Ealing Broadway.
Councillor Jon Ball tweeted the above images yesterday afternoon saying '' Police car windscreen smashed by bottles thrown from Ealing WH Smiths roof.
Councillor Ball told us:
'' This is a shocking incident. Someone could have been killed or seriously injured either directly by a bottle being thrown from that height or as a result of a collision due to a car windscreen being hit. The gate from Haven Place to the rear of WH Smiths and other buildings should be kept securely locked so that people can't access the rooftops to commit these type of acts.''
Police say they were called to the Broadway, W5 at 14:19hrs ( Sunday, 5 June) following reports of youths throwing items at members of the public from a roof.
Police say no members of the public were injured.
