Dramatic moment Aston Villa team bus is BRICKED as police release CCTV footage of attack | The Sun

THIS is the dramatic moment Aston Villa's team bus was BRICKED after their win over Burnley.

Villa ran out 3-1 winners at Turf Moor to rise to seventh in the Premier League table.

But their journey back home was dangerously interrupted when a brick was launched towards their team bus.

Police have now released the CCTV footage in a bid to catch the yobs responsible.

Supt Melita Worswick, of Lancashire Police, said: “This incident could have been so much worse and it is nothing but good luck that nobody was injured.

"The coach driver could have been injured by the broken glass, causing him to swerve into another vehicle, or another vehicle could have been hit by the brick.

"There could have been serious injuries or even fatalities. For this reason we are taking this incident extremely seriously.

“We have now released CCTV footage from the coach and are asking anybody who recognises the two men on the left to get in touch.

"We appreciate the footage of them is quite grainy, but one is wearing distinctive clothing and this may help somebody recognise them.

“The area was busy when incident occurred, with bank holiday traffic and people leaving the area following the football match between Burnley and Aston Villa, and we believe there will be people out there who have not yet spoken to us, who either saw who was responsible or has dashcam showing the men more clearly.
