Police van attacked by youths in Thamesmead

A patrol van in Thamesmead was attacked by youths today with rocks thrown smashing the rear window.

Three Metropolitan Police Special Constables were in the van at the time.




No arrests have been made.

Whilst this plays into some of the unfortunate stereotypes about Thamesmead, a far more positive event is also taking place.

To celebrate 50 years of the town a festival has been underway at Southmere Park.

The event is on till 7pm. It’s now 50 years since July 1968 was when the first family moved into Coralline Walk.
