Teenagers arrested after fence thrown from bridge in Daventry

Two boys have been arrested on suspicion of criminal damage after items were thrown from a bridge onto a busy road.

A fence panel smashed the windscreen of a passing lorry at the so-called Curly Wurly bridge in Daventry, Northamptonshire, on 14 March.

Police appealed for witnesses after fire extinguishers were thrown from the same bridge in January.

The boys who were arrested are aged 14 and 15 and from Daventry.

Northamptonshire Police said the pair were detained on suspicion of causing criminal damage "recklessly endangering life" and had been released on police bail while inquiries took place.
