No One Knows What It’s Like To Be A Dustbin In Shaftsbury With Hooligans
Police and protesters clashed last night in a full-scale riot on Stokes Croft. Bricks, bottles and stones were thrown at officers as several hundred people gathered on Cheltenham Road. As well as eight officers ending up in hospital with injuries, the new controversial Tesco store was smashed up and looted in the early hours of this morning.
During the course of the afternoon people in the community became concerned after seeing people bringing what looked like petrol bombs in and out of the house and a man on the roof with what looked like a petrol can.
But if you’re going to try to evict a squat on what is essentially a Friday night in a very ‘trendy’ part of town where lots of people will be out drinking in celebration of the four day weekend to come, then this is probably what’s goin to happen.
