Anyone else got more info on the riot/incidents from Sunday night?

I've been to quite a few festivals and it'd be a shame to see these scenes repeated.

Sounds bloody appalling and I sincerely hope those involved pay for this......

Hmmm, I'm not saying this is a wind up, but nobody I've spoken to who went to reading (or the 5 people I saw the other night who worked at Reading including Sussie) said nothing about it. They all stayed until Monday. It's entirely possible that they just didn't hear anything about it.

I'm also surprised it wasn't on the news...

But then again I didn't see the field chest high full of water with tents submerged and people canoeing between then at Glastonbury. Yet I was there! :p

I know what you mean though. I've seen a couple of other accounts regarding the kid with the groin injury but nothing on any of the festival sites, nor elsewhere, about any OTT riotting. I think a lot of it is down to Chinese Whispers.

This is a wind-up, there's no mention of it at all on the BBC News website or indeed anywhere other than this post on LJUK.
Seeing as how the Beeb website had an article yesterday that mentioned the riots at the second Woodstock, you'd think they would have at least mentioned it.
That and getting stabbed in the abdomen and it cuts your bollocks off, then being able to stagger to a chair, sit down, check yourself out, THEN pass out? not impossible I'm sure, but really bloody unlikely.

There are apparently several other eyewitness reports about a boy getting hurt in the groin but the majority of the rioting bit seems like it's been fabricated or has been affected by 'chinese whisper' syndrome.
