Two boys are being sought by police after motorists reported rocks being thrown from a footbridge on to the M25 motorway.

It happened at about 17:50 BST on Sunday close to junction 11, near Row Town in Addlestone, Surrey.

Police said the youngsters were aged about 14 years old, and were both wearing black jackets.

No-one was injured but four cars were damaged.

Highways England placed speed restrictions in the immediate area to help reduce the impact to vehicles and their occupants.

Any witnesses, or motorists with dash cam footage, are asked to contact officers.

MPs and police have raised concerns over people's safety on smart motorways.
