Police patrols have been stepped up in Larne and Carrick in response to stones being thrown at passing vehicles.

In Larne, teenagers have been blamed for smashing windscreens of cars and lorries at Harbour Highway.

In Carrick, stones have been thrown at vehicles travelling Prospect Road.

A PSNI spokesperson said: “Officers from your local and neighbourhood policing teams will have additional patrols out over the coming nights targeting the unacceptable anti-social behaviour that the people of Carrickfergus and Larne have been subjected to over the last few weeks.”
