Reckless youths tie barbed wire across busy road in dangerous prank

Alarmed motorists witnessed a group of youths tying barbed wire across Grimsby's busy Peaks Parkway yesterday evening.

Humberside Police have branded the culprits as "highly irresponsible" as they waited for innocent motorists to plough into the razor sharp wire. Local resident Mellissa Findlay watched in horror as around 15 youths gathered as two others held the wire taut across a junction at Welholme Road.
