Braintree and Witham Times: Windscreen smashed by pellet fired from A120 bridge Windscreen smashed by pellet fired from A120 bridge

An object, believed to be an air pellet, was fired at a car as it drove under a flyover on the A120.

The silver BMW, driven by a 51-year-old woman from Dunmow, had its windscreen smashed in the incident near Stansted Airport.

A man dressed all in black was seen on the bridge at the same time, at around 7am on Friday.

The driver, who had just turned off from the M11, was not hurt.

Anybody with information is asked to call Pc Red Leeson at Saffron Walden police station on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

‘An object, believed to be an air pellet, was fired at a car’.

So we don’t actually have the ‘object’ to be sure of precisely what it is (if it exists at all).

We are saying nevertheless that (whatever it was) was fired at the car but we don’t have any witnesses who claim to have seen somebody aiming a weapon of any sort at the car or indeed even in possession of one.

So just what do we know?

>A car suffered a shattered windscreen whilst being driven along the A120
>There were people up and about a 7:00am

That’s about it isn’t it? Oops, I nearly forgot - the driver was a 51 years old lady from Dunmow. Doesn’t really give us much to go on does it?

A shattered windscreen is not a nice thing to have happened, but are we sure this isn’t a case of Two plus Two making Five?

The only 'evidence' would seem to me to be pure conjecture.
