Riot police struggled to clear yet another London block party yesterday after officers were attacked in a violent street party in Brixton

A massive block party took place in West Kilburn yesterday afternoon before moving to Maida Vale where riot police with shields and truncheons battled hundreds of revellers who threw missiles at them.

It marked the third night of unrest after raves Brixton and Notting Hill which both turned violent and led to police injuries. 

In Manchester, police have attended dozens of illegal raves over the past week, with revellers leaving behind piles of rubbish after being dispersed. Greater Manchester Police broke up 39 gatherings in Greater Manchester on Thursday alone.

In Cardiff, piles of hippy crack canisters and empty beer bottles were left behind at late night parties in the bay area to the south of the city.

Visit Cardiff Bay added on Twitter: ‘Please don’t treat it [Cardiff Bay] like a rubbish tip and ruin it for others – put your litter in the bins provided, or if they’re full, take it home with you’

And in Cardiff, piles of hippy crack canisters and empty beer bottles were left behind at late night parties in the bay area to the south of the city.

Cardiff city council said in response: ‘With the recent warm weather and the lockdown starting to ease, we appreciate that residents want to spend more time outside.

‘What isn’t acceptable is for residents to leave their litter in parks and open spaces, ruining them for everyone else, and expecting someone else to clear up the mess they’ve left behind.’
