A MOTHER was left “terrified” after a firework was thrown at her while she was walking her dog in Tadley.

The incident happened at the end of Furze Road at around 6.30pm on Sunday.

In a post on the Spotted Tadley Facebook page, the woman’s daughter said her “mum and her dog were both terrified and I cannot believe someone would do this”.

The incident continues a recent trend in Tadley of projectiles being thrown, although this is the first report of a person being targeted.

Previous attacks include ball bearings, stones and bricks being thrown at vehicle and property windows.

A white transit van has been sighted in connection with the attacks, however no registration number has been provided.
