Interestingly, a post was made on Burgess Hill Uncovered's Facebook page an hour before the incident stating:
Watch out for a group of about 8 kids say around the age of 16. Walking along Leylands Road, throwing stuff at car driving past and parked cars in peoples driveways!
Shouting and swearing and leaving cones in the road making the road looked blocked off. Seen all having cans of beer which im guessing is what they are throwing!
