Two cars have been damaged by objects thrown or dropped onto traffic in Great Yarmouth.

The incidents happened on William Adams Way in Southtown yesterday afternoon (Thursday), and on the A12 Gorleston bypass on Monday.

No-one was injured but car were damaged and police, who said a group of youths was seen nearby after Thursday's incident, has urged parents to be aware of what their children are doing during the summer holiday

Sergeant Dan Smith said: 'Whilst we enjoy relatively low levels of anti-social behaviour, we recognise that the summer holidays can be a time when children and young people can behave out of character.

'All we are asking is that parents take the time to find out where their children are going to be or arrange safe and fun activities for them.

'We believe it can be easy for youngsters to become involved in minor crime and anti-social behaviour without some rules being imposed by parents.

'A mental note by mums, dads and carers of where their children are going to be, and when they are returning home could be enough to prevent that child or young person becoming unnecessarily involved in crime and disorder.'
