Anyone with more details, please send them in.

Riot with fires and stone throwing
Police and firemen were set upon by stone and egg throwing in Ramels Way on Friday evening. The situation worsened and became so serious that the fire brigade dared not enter the neighbourhood without police escort.
A sizeable gang of children and teens set upon police who were answering a report at half-past seven that a man wielding a sword was chasing children. The police didn’t find the swordsman but got a report of a threat. Whilst the police were responding to the report, the stone throwing began. After a while there came another order for them to go to the square. The police tried backing off to try and calm
the situation, but to no avail.
The youths got help from additional friends so that there was by 10:30pm a gang of about fifteen or so youths in their early teens.
Stones, eggs and a glass bottle were thrown at the police but no one was hurt.
However, at least one police car was damaged and the police wrote a report on the violence towards the officer.
When the fire brigade came to fire in a shop on Ramels Way, they too were on the receiving end of stone throwing. Because of this unrest, emergency services arrived and advised the fire brigade to wait for the police to come before they drove further into the neighbourhood. The emergency service sent for reinforcements in case of other alarms, the emergency service wrote in a press report.
At eleven o’clock, two other store buildings were on fire in Ramels Way, the fire brigade drove forward to Shellmacken by the roundabout, but stayed there and waited for the police. A sizeable police contingent came to the assistance of the firemen, who then drove in and put the fires out. However, the stone throwing started up again but no one was injured and no one arrested.
An hour later yet another store was on fire in Ramels Way. The procedure of waiting for the police was repeated, but the fire grew stronger and the firemen were forced to send for reinforcements.
Stone throwing also was directed against a boutique which had called for the police about ten o’clock. When the police patrol got there, the stone throwing became worse, but then died off without anyone being hurt.
