15 officers injured and police cars smashed after street party

Fifteen officers have been injured and police cars smashed up during "significant disorder" following a street party in Brixton overnight.

Footage on social media showed a line of police retreating from crowds of people on Cecilia Road near the Angell Town estate in Brixton.

Bottles were thrown at the officers and in one video a man appeared to be brandishing a long sword at the officers.

Two men could be seen on top of a police vehicle smashing in the windscreen with a large object and their feet.

Another two men were seen carrying a large wooden table before placing it on the floor and ripping the legs off

Police were called to the scene on Wednesday evening to reports of a large unlicensed street party and tried to encourage the crowd to leave as large gatherings are not allowed due to the coronavirus lockdown, but "they did not engage with police", a Met Police statement said.

More officers then came down and the group became hostile towards them and despite a dispersal zone order being granted the crowd remained.

It is absolutely perfect rioting weather. I am very familiar with Brixton of the 1970s. I thought it had gone posh now.

The bit by the coffee shops and artisanal bakers is nice, and Electric Avenue is so very ethnic -- but who'd want to live with the poor people...

Who was that bloke that was banging on about the whip hand again, BLM seems to be emboldening certain elements of the 'black community' to believe they are free to literally run riot.

They may be slow but they have got there this time.

It's on their front page now.

Good to beat the BBC but I’m even prouder to have beaten @The Masked Tulip to it! Is it just buried in local news? Still can’t see it on the News front page or homepage. If this had happened in the US it would be all over the website and TV.

Poor people share what they have. It's the rich that are tight.

Not sure if you mean share or 'share'.

But you're right -- you don't get much for living in a rich community.  I quite like living in the country, although you can't buy yourself into the community, even though you can buy yourself into a property -- it takes about 15 years before people start regarding you as a 'local'.    But maybe that's just because I'm Welsh.

That's rather worrying.

I had assumed that that was the standard UK front page (see the sub menu England / NI etc.); I hadn't realised that I had been provided with a tailored version!

It’s just started appearing - maybe a server/ISP thing. Should be headline news though.

Poor people generally have no concept of providing for tomorrow so what comes in that week they spend that week as they always have.

That's why they have to go straight onto benefits when they lose their jobs and burn through lottery wins.  There is no concept of saving.

I've known somebody who took temp jobs in the £40k - £60k range who was just like that; job lost and straight down the labour exchange to get housing benefit to pay next week's rent.  Played the rich woman in pubs and restaurants and was poor as a consequence.

People make themselves poor; it isn't a state to which to aspire or to put upon a pedestal as Charles Dickens did.

That's a terrible statement Franko. I guess some didn't go to your posh public school. And before you say it, I have some very good friends, who are "rather privileged", and never let on. I won't discriminate on that. It's not where you are from, it's the belief you have in where you are going, and I mix with all sorts.

That's why I put in the example of my friend.  Earns a lot and spends every penny and more; by any standards £60k is a decent whack and I have known her earn that for several jobs.

Her mother gives her her old cars so she doesn't even need to buy one.  She puts on the appearance of being rich and is poor as a consequence.

It's not what you earn it's what you keep.
