“People may have witnessed the disorder, individuals or vehicles leaving the scene, or seen something suspicious. We need them to get in touch as every piece of information, no matter how small, could be crucial.
“I’d also like to hear from any motorists who were in the area at the time and have dashcam footage as they also may have recorded something important."

Longer term we are working with partners including the council, health, education and charities to tackle violent crime and the root causes of violence."
