Those caught up in the violence have spoken of the night of terror ending nearly 30 years of a regular auction which raised thousands of pounds for charities such as Cancer Research UK and the baby care unit at the nearby Diana, Princess of Wales Hospital.Comments are, umm, interesting:
North East Lincolnshire Council South ward councillor Norma Lincoln said it was the worst violence she had witnessed on the estate in more than 18 years.
The venue, which she hires out to charity and community groups, will now be closed for at least a fortnight.

“there was a fight between 2 lasses one of the lasses lost so she got the lady's eldest son he then hit a young girl and slung her onto a car bonnet all im saying is there is a lot more to what happened... and the lady went to hit 1 of the teens...which is how she ended up being pushed! all im saying is there is a lot more to what happened it wasnt a riot far from it and maybe if the police spent more time keeping the peace than winding the residents up it wouldnt have got that bad”
