Further details are emerging of events in Woolwich on Sunday night as it’s revealed that a 14 year old boy suffered a stab wound and 30 arrested in disorder across the town centre.
Four officers were also injured, while a man suffering a suspected heart attack had fireworks launched towards him.
Large numbers gathered in the town on Sunday as on previous nights this year, and also seen in the last few years when disorder followed.
This site has had messages from locals worried it’s affecting their business and others stating they now feel unsafe visiting the area or walking home.
Greenwich councillor Jackie Smith, Cabinet Member for Community Safety and Enforcement, stated on a council new story: “We have had reports that fireworks were thrown at members of the public including a woman and her two small children and that police officers were attacked while others prevented help being given. At one point, emergency workers were prevented from helping a man who had a suspected heart attack after a firework was thrown at him too. Even as he received urgent care, people continued to throw fireworks in his direction.”
