Aston Villa’s Triumph Marred by Motorway Brick Attack

As Aston Villa euphorically celebrated their win against Burnley on Sunday, they were hit with an unpleasant shock when their team bus was attacked on Monday afternoon on its return journey home from Turf Moor – from where it originated on M65 in Lancashire – from which a brick was thrown directly at it by unknown individuals from an adjoining footbridge on M65 in Lancashire – but no injuries were caused as a result of this disturbing act and Lancashire Police will conduct an exhaustive investigation.

Superintendent Melita Worswick from Lancashire Police stressed the severity of the situation by noting, “it was only by sheer luck that this brick didn’t cause more damage or lead to anyone becoming seriously injured or even killed. Authorities remain unsure whether this was intended as targeted vandalism or just random acts; all available resources will be utilized in searching out those responsible.”

Burnley have endured multiple setbacks this season, and this latest incident is just the latest example. In their season-opening match at Turf Moor earlier this month, Rico Lewis of Manchester City was struck by an object thrown from the crowd which raised questions regarding fan behavior and play was briefly stopped due to a pitch invader in that game.

Burnley Football Club quickly issued a strong condemnation of Aston Villa’s team bus attack, and expressed their outrage in a swift statement, which read in part: “We strongly condemn this behavior and support Lancashire Police’s investigations to ascertain who may have perpetrated this act.” Their promotion to Premier League had raised hopes for success; yet after losing 3-1 against Villa it appears they may face stiffer challenges ahead.
