There was approximately 500 in attendance mainly youth. Partygoers left and as they gathered on the street, started to throw bottles and other items at Police.

As the large group were moved on further bottles were thrown at Police, and several fights also broke out among the group.

police made a number of arrests for disorder, there was no injuries to Police.

Further disorder jobs were received from the area over the next two hours as various parts of the dispersed groups caused issues in the local environs.

Again alcohol played a large role in sheer quantity and the age of those drinking.

People who supply alcohol to teens commit offences and if proven will face the courts.
