No One Knows What It’s Like To Be A Dustbin In Shaftsbury With Hooligans… Almost Literally
The news channels are showing pictures of fires having broken out in Lewisham. It appears a car and a row of bins, all along the same street, have been set ablaze. The footage shows police officers dragging large wheely bins which are not on fire away from the others, as officers with shields and Nato helmets form a line behind them. From the helicopter footage there is no sign of any people in the immediate area.
The images show groups of youths, and police, on the streets. In one a chair appears to have been thrown across the road.
