On Monday night there was a violent incident in Eric Street with two rival gangs fighting on the street. The gangs were armed with knives, machetes and a pick axe. Police were called to break up the fighting and rid the area of those intent on violence.

The scene in Eric Street on Monday night
The following is from the MERA website where we posted the first report of this incident Violence erupts on Eric Street
The incident started when a group of young men arrived on the estate in a dark car and chased some local men off Eric Street, cornering them by the entrance to Windermere House. They were attacked with knives but managed to to make their get away. Blood was found in the area but the extent of their injuries is unknown. The assailants returned to their car and sped off.

A further attack was witnessed near the grass area on Eric Street. The weapon used was said to have been a pick axe. At least one person was seen with blood coming from what appeared to be a head injury.

Shocked residents looked on as police arrived in force at around 10.00pm to separate the two groups. The young men involved quickly discarded weapons in gardens and open spaces which were then sealed off by police.
