. A family are appealing for witnesses to come forward after a brick was thrown through their front room window narrowly missing their disabled son.
Gary Bishop was watching television in the front room on Thursday evening when the brick smashed through the glass at about 9pm.
“Thank God the curtains were closed else it would have caused a lot more damage to my son who was sitting by the window,” said Mr Bishop, of Clarkson Avenue.
Three weeks earlier a brick was thrown through the window of their younger 23 year old son Thomas’s car window which was parked in the drive.
The family moved from Leicester six months ago to enjoy the quieter life of the Fens and have no idea why someone would want to target their house.
Mr Bishop, a painter and decorator, said: “It makes no sense why would someone want to do that. It’s frightening to think of the damage that the brick could have caused. It was a total shock.
“I’m just hoping someone out there saw the people running off and can come forward to give evidence.”

Their 34 year old son Neil suffers from cerebral palsy and would have been unable to move to get out of the way to avoid broken glass and the brick.
Mr Bishop said that police have been out but were unable to get finger prints off the brick that was thrown through the window.
The family remain mystified why they have been targeted.
A cambridgeshire Police spokesman said: “We are investigating after a brick was thrown through a window of a house in Clarkson Avenue, Wisbech, at about 9pm on Thursday March 14.
“Anyone with any information should call police on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111. “
