‘Troublemakers’ ejected from Barking mela

Police arrested two people for public order offences at the Barking Park mela.

A small number of “troublemakers” were also thrown out of the Sunday festival for “minor disorder”.

Longbridge Safer Neighbourhood Team Sgt Andy Larkin said: “When one considers that several thousand people attended the event, the handful of troublemakers represents a very small percentage of the total.”
