Police offered a hint today they know the identity of some of the group of youths who hurled eggs at passing traffic in Wisbech.
The incident happened yesterday (Sunday) morning as police were out on patrol in the Park Road and William Road area of the town.
“Twenty youths aged 15-19 thought it funny to throw eggs at passing cars,” said a police spokesman.
Officers chased the culprits but were unable to catch them at the time but all is not lost.
Last night the Police Fenland Facebook page posted: “Information has been gained tonight following our foot chase with them.”
“This area will be receiving more attention from my team and any offenders will be robustly dealt with.”
It was a busy day in the area with local police called to Leverington to try to find riders on off-road bikes damaging Roman Bank.
