On 21 June, for the second night in a row, mass brawls broke out in Stamford Hill near Lynmouth Road Shomrim N.E. London, the area home to the largest Jewish community in the British capital. Dozens of violent youths clashed following an illegal rave, according to reports.

Riot police was dispatched to stop the “violence involving machetes and swords after an illegal rave,” a neighbourhood watch group said on Twitter. According to a London Metropolitan Police spokesman:

“Additional officers were called to Stamford Hill estate to reports of a fight between a large group. One person was found at the scene suffering from a stab wound.” 

The man was taken by air ambulance to an east London hospital.
