Violent scenes erupted during the night
and early hours as white and Asian youths clashed yet again. The recent high visible police presence has been reduced
and already violence is back on the streets. That afternoon a barnesy crew youth claimed an Asian shot at him with an
air gun, 4 barnesy crew members then left the pub and confronted the Asian resulting in the Asian being punched. Gangs of
Asian youths gathered on the raily that night and groups of white charvers roamed the streets amid a tense atmosphere. A hand
full of barnesy crew members drank in a nearby pub watching out for any sign of trouble, a minor scuffle broke out on the
raily as white youths passed the Asians and some LPC members ran out their homes attacking the white youths. Within an hour
the white youths returned with a 50 strong gang and ran the Asians down from the raily throwing rocks and bottles down at
them. Sirens could be heard as police rushed to the scene and both gangs fled. As riot vans shot past the pub the barnesy
crew members left and rushed down to see what was going on, as they ran past the mosque a group of LPC ran out of the back
lane and attacked the barnesy crew, fighting spilled onto the road and police were forced to head back up the road to break
it up, as police did this the white charvers took advantage and ran across the raily again some chanting "en-ger-land",
as Asians attacked them again police were forced to control 2 fights on a long stretch of road. Eventually the barnesy crew
slipped away down the back lane and rang up other members to join them, after about 20 minutes there was now 10 barnesy crew
and they jogged down towards the raily where Asian and white youths were still throwing missiles at each other and police
repeatedly tried to chase them off the raily, the barnesy crew ran up from behind the Asians and rushed into them with chair
legs and other weapons collected from the back lanes, as they did so the charvers ran into them as well, the Asians were forced
to fight on both sides and police seemed powerless to break it up without backup, I watched from the corner of Thelma street
(a street well known for LPC activity and racial clashes) and I believe it to be some of the most vicious and hate filled
fighting I’ve witnessed away from Tyne & wear derbies. Riot vans parked at the bottom of the raily and police ran
up from 3 directions forcing the gangs to try and flee past them or jump from the raily wall.
Meanwhile the barnes park mob (who have
distanced from the main barnesy crew) clashed with asians in and around barnes park, Asians are believed to have ran to barnes
park to escape police and were jumped as they ran through.
Following white youths being stabbed
in clashes with Asian youths in which a mass mob of Asians attacked a small group of whites the Barnesy Crew targeted
LPC members all night searching areas around Barnes, Eden Vale and Millfield. In the early hours around 20 barnesy crew members spotted
5 or so LPC members and attacked them, after a minute or so the Asians were all left on the ground and the barnesy crew carried
on their search for more LPC even targeting a LPC members house kicking the front door and smashing windows screaming for
the LPC member to come out, one barneys crew member waved a knife through the window trying to frighten the people inside.
Some police headed down the street and the barnesy crew fled.
