Flint smashes through car window possibly shot from a catapult
A large piece of flint smashed through the rear quarter light window and became embedded in the headrest of a car with the driver believing it could have been shot by someone with a catapult.
Police are appealing for witnesses to the incident of criminal damage to a motor vehicle in Worlington, which occurred at some point between 10.25am and 10.30am on Monday, August 16.
A male was driving the BMW X2 along the B1102 near Worlington when the piece of flint entered his car.
