Immigration Raid Sabotaged in London

Reports are circulating of an attempted immigration raid being sabotaged by locals in Shadwell, London, on Wednesday (22 July). 16 tyres were let down and officers were egged in an action reminiscent of the resistance in Walworth last month. To make matters worse for the immigration cops, they had apparently been accompanied by media in a bid to do a spectacular “tough on immigration” stunt. The cops were called, and sadly two people were arrested in the incident.

One commenter said: “While they were busy raiding Chapman Street, their tyres got slashed, valves taken and cars scratched. The local garage refused to sell them tyres or help them. To top it all off they got egged from the local tower block and a few landed direct on their heads. Welcome to Shadwell.”
