A couple of hours ago I met one of my friends at Walthamstow Bus Station. As we walked north on Hoe Street we saw a gang of around thirty youths chasing after ten boys running towards the bus station, the former screaming at the latter to come and fight.
Walking up Howard Road, we saw a huddle of fifteen youths, with two more standing on the corner informing the rest what was going on. I was not sure which of the two groups of youths they belonged to.
Later, we took the 257 back to the bus station as it was raining, and saw a police riot van on the pavement near the HSBC with six youths being questioned by ten yellow-jacketed police officers.
Not sure if these boys were from one of the notorious postcode gangs, or whether this was a simple argument that developed into a fight and caused some youths to call for reinforcements.
I saw an ambulance with blue lights flashing speeding away from the area, so there must have been some injuries.
