The media has been keeping fairly quiet about this... although not completely as you can see...

Not everything is well in England's green and pleasant land.

Quote:
Around 160 officers in full riot gear swooped on a house in the Stokes Croft area of the city at around 9.15pm to arrest four people they said were "a real threat to the local community".

But the operation sparked local unrest, with eyewitnesses reporting police fighting running battles with hundreds of protesters, who dug up cobbles from the road surface to throw at them. A branch of Tesco Metro in Cheltenham Road was petrol bombed.
