Snow warning to thrillseekers in Rainham
Thrillseekers riding sledges being pulled along by cars
were given a warning by police.
Several people were spoken to by
officers after police received reports people were being towed
along in the snow in the Northumberland Avenue area of Rainham.
Officers also warned four motorists
following reports of cars doing hand brake turns at the Hempstead
Valley Shopping Centre car park, in Gillingham.
Over the weekend, the force
received a number reports of weather related incidents across the
county and officers issued words of advice to those causing
anti-social behaviour and criminal damage, including people
throwing snowballs at moving cars.
Ch Insp Matthew Kendall said: “Such
behaviour is dangerous and not only risks injury to the drivers,
but to members of the public too.
"I’d urge people having fun in the
snow to stay safe and to avoid throwing snowballs at strangers,
vehicles, or people’s homes.
“Without wishing to spoil anyone’s
fun, it may be worth remembering that not everyone loves this
weather so if you are throwing snowballs please be considerate of
others and their property.”
