Mob rule

From the Department of Tourism:

SHEFFIELD was today branded a “dangerous city” after 48 Spanish teenagers were forced to flee when they were set upon by a gang of yobs close to the city centre. The youngsters, all aged from 13 to 17, were attacked with stones, bricks and plastic bottles and fled along Norfolk Park Road, seeking sanctuary at Heritage Park Special School. Paramedics were called to treat a number of minor injuries and police began a search to track down the gang.


Heritage Park headteacher John Hill said many of the students were hysterical when they arrived at his school after the attack. “They ran in seeking refuge. Some had cuts and bruises but many more were suffering from shock and were sick,” he said. “The whole of our dining room was turned into a medical centre – we had to enact our school’s disaster policy.”

What a lovely introduction to South Yorkshire. Sure, it’s not indicative for how Sheffield treats foreigners – we remain a friendly, vibrant and multi-cultural city – but what are the chances any of these kids, their family or friends will ever want to return? Precislely zero, and I don’t think anyone could blame them.
