The police strike "disgusting inhuman thugs," who threw bottles at the police and threatened them with knives


The police have branded a group of people attending an illegal block party in West London as "disgusting inhuman thugs" after officers were bottle-thrown and knife-threatened.

Officers were attacked with bottles after trying to clear a "block party" Havelock Close, White City.

On Twitter, the Southall Broadway Police Account said: & # 39; The team and @MPSDormers Wells were among those front officers who were attacked by missiles, as well as thugs who tried to fight, one of them even swung a knife at us.

& # 39; Unfortunately, some of us were injured in this incident. Disgusting inhumane behavior of these thugs. & # 39;

The officials had to withdraw after being showered with glass when they tried to end "an unlicensed musical event".

London Mayor Sadiq Khan also condemned the street party and called it "shameful".

He said: "Violence against the police will not be tolerated and the perpetrators will be caught and prosecuted.

"Additional police will be outside today and will continue to work hard to protect our city."

The video showed the police withdrawing while a group of young men threw various items at them.

Scotland Yard said they would "deal with those present and encourage them to leave".

At one point, almost 200 riot police and two helicopters were on site.

The block party took place just hours after Prime Minister Boris Johnson asked people to be sensible before the bars reopened at 6 a.m.

According to Scotland Yard: & # 39; officers tried to engage the crowd to get them to leave, but the group became hostile. A number of items were thrown at the police, who retreated to regroup.

Shortly afterwards, specially trained public order officers entered the property to disperse the group. They were faced with further hostility and violence. & # 39;

Seven officers were injured in the incident.

A spill zone has been approved and a section 60 order has been issued that will allow officers to stop and search nearby people.

DAC Laurence Taylor said: “The officials have responded to residents who have complained about a large gathering, noise, anti-social behavior and violence.

“These assemblies are illegal and also pose a risk to public health.

“The violence against officers that evening was completely unacceptable and we will not tolerate it in any form. Officers came across stones and other rockets that were thrown at them. Our robust police response has shown that we will closely monitor incidents like this and stop those who intend to harm or disrupt our communities. & # 39;

Police said all participants in the White City event were disbanded at 1:15 am this morning, a few hours after the first complaints were received.

Meanwhile, a few miles away, the police in Hayes warned petrol heads not to attend a car meeting.

The meeting took place in the Hayes Bridge Retail Park. However, the police warned drivers that they would lose their driver's license and fines of up to £ 1,000 if they did stunts.

During some auto meetings, drivers drive their cars or do donuts, burns, or tire smoke, trying to impress people in the crowd with hand brakes.

Police in Hillingdon said: “A car meeting causes noise to residents.

“The type of driving is not only dangerous for other road users, but the stunts performed at these events are dangerous for everyone present.

"You could be fined locally or £ 1,000 after conviction."

Some videos of cars that were shown on the way to the meeting were shown on social media.

Many of the heavily modified cars appeared to be VWs and BMWs. Some of the cars had modified exhaust systems with drain valves to generate additional noise while driving.

Last week, 22 police officers were slightly injured after a street party in the Brixton district of South London became violent. Another meeting at Notting Hill in west London also led to clashes.

Following the most serious incident in Brixton on June 24, city police commissioner Dame Cressida Dick said the number of police violations had increased to 140 in the three weeks before, including those injured in post-death protests by George Floyd in the USA.

The Commissioner promised to end the "horrific" raves, and Home Secretary Priti Patel condemned the Brixton incident as "absolutely mean".

Three people arrested at the event for violent police interference have appeared before the court and are awaiting trial or further trial.

Under the coronavirus restrictions in England, meetings are limited to six people, even after Saturday when pubs and restaurants can be reopened in the recent lockout easing.
