The Meadow

Near midnight on the second night of the disturbances, and large contingents of police with riot shields formed a line near the Harp Larger Brewery while other contingents gathered on Denmark Road.  After a prolonged stand-off with the large crowd on the meadow of “residents and rioters”, with little warning there was a baton charge by police across Princess Road.

By 1:30 am, several convoys of police vans were used in an attempt to disperse those around the meadow, racing up Quinney Crescent and driving into the crowd. The panda vans rammed at barricade that had been set on fire at Plainsfield Close and vans with searchlights were used to chase and arrest those on the streets.
