"Firefighters had rocks and other debris thrown at them as they tried to tackle a blaze on an unauthorised traveller encampment. About 70 vehicles have been on Waterhall playing fields in Mill Road, Brighton, for more than a week. But crews from East Sussex Fire and Rescue are now refusing to attend any more incidents at the site without police presence after they had things thrown at them when dealing with an arson incident......after reports of a group of children setting some trees on fire......a 'wolflike' dog was being goaded into attacking the 999 team while there were reports of people trying to take things off the engine."
Why not arrest them for threatening behaviour and criminal damage instead? Police are much harsher on gypsies in Eastern Europe, where they often complain of being treated as subhumans. And as more of them flock to Western Europe - with an avalanche predicted from January next year - more of us are finding out why they are so regarded.
The Indians didn't kick them out in the middle ages for nothing
