“The incident happened on the A57 in Worksop at around 3.50pm on Sunday (27 September 2020).

“The woman has just passed under the footbridge in between Cavendish Road and Windmill Lane, heading east, when an unknown offender has thrown a large stone.

“The stone struck the windscreen, causing it to smash. Luckily the stone did not injure the driver and she did amazingly well to keep calm and stop the vehicle safely.

“We are now appealing to anyone who may have seen or heard the incident or been in the area. We are particularly keen to hear from anyone who has dashcam footage.

“The offender is described as a white man, aged around mid-teens with a medium build, he had short blonde hair and was wearing a navy blue zipped hooded top.
