One woman told how on Friday night, yobs had thrown a brick at her daughter as she walked under the bridge and it narrowly missed her.

Sheffield North East Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “Unfortunately, The Parson Cross and Southey Team have today had to intervene once again as a group of youths threw bricks from the Five Arches Bridge on Herries Road.

"Several vehicles have been damaged in the process, however fortunately on this occasion no one was seriously hurt. Someone will be if this continues – if not killed.

“Please share this with family and friends whose children are potentially out in these areas on an evening and weekends. These are 'mindless' and 'frightening' incidents which can very quickly escalate into something very serious with very serious consequences.
