A SAFETY warning has been issued by police after a group of youths threw bricks off the top of multi-storey car park in Halesowen.

Police were called to the car park at the Great Cornbow Centre yesterday (April 11) to reports of a group of teenagers throwing bricks from the top of the building.

The teens had gone when police arrived.

The police have urged Dudley Council to remove the loose pieces of concrete.

A police spokeswoman said: "Police were called to a report at 2pm yesterday (Thursday 11 April), that a group of teenagers had been seen throwing bricks off the top of the multi-storey car park at Great Cornbow Centre in Halesowen.

"Officers attended within minutes, but the youths had already gone. Dudley Council has been informed that loose pieces of concrete in the car park need to be removed to prevent future issues."

Police took to Twitter to remind parents not let their children 'gather in places of danger' with the Easter holidays due to start.

Council chiefs have confirmed they are working to ensure the top of the car park is safe.

Alan Lunt, Deputy Chief Executive and strategic director for place, said: “The police have made us aware of an incident at one of our car parks and our officers are now in the process of ensuring the area is safe.

“We take antisocial behaviour very seriously and we will support police with any investigations into this matter.”
