Island Echo understands last night’s incident has ties to other recent, notable crimes.

Witnesses say that a number of people were present with 2 people carrying what appeared to be weapons – a chainsaw and a metal pole with ‘something sharp’ taped to the end.

Hampshire Constabulary has been approached for a statement.

UPDATE @ 12:40 – Police have confirmed that 2 arrests have been made.

Why do these people want to live like this???

My previous comments have been removed, for some reason, perhaps island echo thought it may upset the Chav’s, or maybe their benefits would be affected in some way….who knows…
