TWO 10-year-olds have been questioned by police after a number of Swindon buses were pelted with stones.

Wiltshire Police are appealing for witnesses after the "dangerous" incidents, which took place over the last month in the Pinehurst Road and Cheney Manor Road areas of the town.

Each time, windows were smashed causing substantial damage and putting passengers at risk.

A 14-year-old was also questioned in connection with the incidents, along with the two 10-year-olds.

The incidents took place on the following dates:
* August 19: 7.39pm on Cheney Manor Road
* August 21: 7pm on Pinehurst Road
* August 23: 7.39pm on Pinehurst Road
* August 28: 3.50pm on Pinehurst Road

Community Beat Manager for Pinehurst PC Dave Thompson said: "Since the first few incidents, we have increased patrols in the area and, as a result, have identified and spoken to three people in connection with these incidents.

"I would urge all parents to keep an eye on what their children are up to when they are out playing and have a conversation with them about the consequences of people doing things like this.

"These actions are dangerous and reckless."

Anyone with information should contact Wiltshire Police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
