“Honestly we give up. We’ve asked for help, engaged in dialogue. I’ll say it one last time .. Something really serious will happen so If you’re in a position to do so, help.
“There is now people being dropped off in cars to get involved in the trouble and parents picking up their kids who must have called them to get away.
“Lovely evening if you live here but standard. Just told my own children not to go out tonight.
“It’s now a go-to destination for kids to drink far too much vodka and the rest, then smash cars up, assault locals and worse, I worry that something really bad happened tonight.”
