Highfields riots
« on: 09:02:54, 24/02/17 »
Does anyone remember the race riots in Highfields in or around 1999? They were allegedly started because of a fight between a black and an Asian family, and ended up with people being attacked because of their colour. I'm white and was attacked by a gang of Asian blokes that evening, and the police asked me to keep it quiet as they were worried media interest would cause them to spread.
