A quiet street in a market town erupted into violence as two gangs armed with garden equipment and a chainsaw clashed.I presume they mean a petrol driven chainsaw? Or they had a very long lead!
The fight erupted shortly before 3.30pm on Friday on the small residential street of Fleeters Hill in Hingham.
It is understood the incident was the result of a long-running neighbourhood dispute, which had boiled over.Ah!
One woman, who did not wish to be named, said she was watching TV in bed when she heard commotion outside.
“I saw all the men running in different directions, and it was just fists to begin with,” she said. “But then all of a sudden a chainsaw came out, then loads of other garden tools.
“One boy was threatening to wrap a spade around an older bloke’s head.
“The chainsaw was running and a young lad got cut by it across his chest. He was bleeding quite a bit.”
“It was initially between two males, but they had gangs on each side.
“This all boils down to someone reporting the others to the council for having fires, and them accusing someone as being the ones who reported them.”It's all so very different from London.
