A Northamptonshire Police spokeswoman said: “Throwing items off a bridge and onto moving traffic is exceptionally dangerous.

"It is not a game and someone could very easily be killed.

“Our message to the young people doing this is that you are playing with the lives of innocent people and if the worst happens, you will not only devastate a family, you could end up going to prison for a long time.”
