Police have taken to Facebook to call on parents to help stop vandal attacks on moving vehicles in part of Leeds.
Officers from Rothwell neighbourhood policing team (NPT) say there have been numerous reports of youths throwing stones and bricks on Belle Isle Road, Belle Isle, and the surrounding area.
A NPT spokesman said: “There have been several taxis and buses damaged as well as other cars.
“The potential consequences of such actions cannot be overestimated. Not only is there a massive cost implication for taxi firms, bus companies and private individuals but the potential for injury and serious accident is very high.”
In a message posted on Facebook, the NPT added: “This is an appeal to parents and carers of children who are out on an evening: speak to your kids about these issues.
“We are in no doubt that the ones committing these offences are a minute percentage of our young people. Unfortunately even they run the risk of arrest if they stand by and watch one of their group commit an offence.”
