Orpington woman injured after brick thrown from M25 bridge in Dartford smashes windscreen
AN Orpington woman suffered “a terrifying experience” after a brick was thrown through her car windscreen from a bridge on the M25 in Dartford.
Georgina Hillier, 23, was travelling as a passenger on the anti-clockwise motorway towards the Dartford Tunnel at 1pm on Sunday (September 9), when she saw two men standing on the Watling Street bridge.
A brick was then thrown from the bridge, smashing the windscreen and leaving Ms Hillier with cuts to her wrist and glass in her eyes.
Her partner Ian Barnard, who was driving, stopped immediately and the two men left the bridge in the Greenhithe direction.
Ms Hillier was taken to Darent Valley Hospital while Mr Barnard did not sustain injuries.
Neighbourhood policing Sergeant Sarah Rivett said: “This young woman has suffered a terrifying experience which could have resulted in considerable injuries.
“She’s been lucky and the medical treatment she has received will ensure no lasting damage.
“We must prevent something like this from happening again - next time the victim may not be so lucky.”
Anyone with any information should call 101.
