Police have described a pile of broken glass placed across a busy County Derry road last night as having the potential to be ‘extremely dangerous’
The PSNI received a report of several broken bottles on the Disert Road, Draperstown at approximately 9.50pm last night, Monday September 20.
I nearly ran the car off the road tonight because somebody thought it would be funny to empty a bucket load of glass on the Disert Road (bad bridge at Creagh pit entrance).Not only would this destroy tyres but it would cause serious harm or even death as it's on a bridge!

Inspector Patton said enquiries into the incident were underway.
