Lucy: There are literally hundreds of them and they have come out of nowhere…. I still can’t make out what they are saying but it appears to just be random screaming at this stage.
The riot police have formed a wall of overlapping shields as they prepare for these violent thugs to approach. We’ve seen these situations before where a stalemate forms as the rioters, regardless of their numbers, hold back and hurl projectiles and missiles or whatever they can find at the police front line. It’s often seen as beneficial to allow the rioters to vent their anger in a contained space, and then come back later to make arrests using video surveillance evidence to identify suspects.
Kay: Thank you Lucy. We are hearing reports of the army being
