Last month, police released images of 29 men they want to speak to about the night of November 5, 2022 when residents were “terrorised” by a gang of up to 80 youths hurling fireworks.

Around 100 police officers were deployed to Parkinson Lane where fireworks were being set off towards buildings and cars.
