Or regular reporter AJ writes:
"Whilst driving along Marine Terrace yesterday (Friday 16th) at a 4:45pm, I saw most of our Thanet police and police cars busy from The Flamingo down to Arlington Arcade. There seemed to be a large number of youths in clusters with Police Officers questioning and searching quite a number of them. I heard from a taxi-driver this morning that according to 'street gossip', a 'gang' from Ramsgate had come over to mix it with a 'gang' in Margate. A sad way for some of our youth to spend their half-term!"
Ed: Does anyone else know more about this? As a boy I can remember sitting on the cliffs at Westbrook with a pair of binoculars pointed at Margate beach, as a huge battle between "Mods" and "Rockers" erupted over the golden sands. Times have been worse we can remind ourselves!
