People are throwing things at your house. You ring the police. The missiles continue for over an hour. No police come until they've gone.
TEENAGE yobs bombarded the homes of frightened residents with mud for more than an hour during a bizarre attack. A gang of 12 used a homemade device to scoop mud from a nearby field and fired dozens of clods of earth at houses in Exeter Street, on the Mill Hill and Ewood border in Blackburn. Residents, including pensioners, said they felt under siege and terrified during the attack, which was the latest in a series of incidents involving teenage gangs in the Mill Hill area.
However, seven calls were made to police by residents during the mud throwing on Monday night, but officers did not attend until after the offenders had fled. Residents criticised the police response, but bosses said there were other incidents which meant they could not send any officers right away.
Not the first time :
MEMBERS of a gang of car vandals have been leaving behind their "calling card" in the form of a graffiti logo. Police said that over the past three weeks a number of vehicles have been damaged around the Stephen Street area of Mill Hill. Hundreds of pounds worth of damage has been caused after the gang poured paintstripper on vehicles or scratched paint off door panels and other parts of the bodywork. The letters MHB and other logos are usually spray painted on a wall nearby. MHB is believed to stand for Mill Hill Boys - a local gang.
Now police are urging residents to come forward with information about possible gang members in a bid to put an end to the trail of destruction.
Possible gang members eh ? Difficult ...
