The skinhead gang marched in military formation down the High Street clutching iron bars, knives, staves, pickaxe handles and clubs.

There were at least 100 of them. They had spent two days planning their attack. The date was 28 March 1980.

Then the skinheads charged.

Most of them belonged to an extreme far-right group called the British Movement (BM).
