Girl, 4, hit in Dundee bus stoning incident

A four-year-old girl has been injured after a stone was thrown at a bus in Dundee.

It is understood the girl, who was a passenger on the bus, was hit when the stone flew through an open window.

She was taken to Ninewells Hospital but was not seriously injured, and was released after a check-up.

Police have said they want to find two boys seen throwing stones during the incident, which was on Berwick Drive near the Laurels at 19:55 on Tuesday.

The boys are described as being 12-13 years old and were both wearing green hooded tops and light-coloured tracksuit bottoms.

A statement from Police Scotland said: "The implications of throwing any type of missile at a moving vehicle are very serious indeed, not least when it is public transport carrying passengers.

"Those who get involved in this reckless behaviour may view it as a bit of harmless fun, but they should consider the potential consequences of their actions. Their actions threaten lives."
