Councillor Jon Ball tweeted the above images yesterday afternoon saying '' Police car windscreen smashed by bottles thrown from Ealing WH Smiths roof.

Bottle throwing - access to roof space
Youths are thought to have gained access to the roof above W H Smiths

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.''
