In Friday's Gazette: Kids drop brick onto A12 driver
8:46am Friday 3rd August 2012 in News
A MOTORIST is today lucky to be alive after a brick thrown by children from a bridge onto the A12 smashed into his van.
Police last night launched a hunt for a group of children spotted with the brick on the Halstead footbridge near Colchester just after 3pm yesterday.
Also in Friday's Gazette:
- A new supermarket is due to open in Colchester town centre this weekend.
- You may not have heard of him, but 300 screaming youngsters queued outside Sainsbury's Tollgate yesterday morning to meet Conor Maynard - the "British Bieber".
- A rogue trader smashed a wall belonging to an elderly dementia sufferer - then billed her for repairs.
All this and much more in your Gazette - only 43p. Remember, there's always much more in the newspaper than online.
