The firefighters were attacked by a small number of young people before they realized the Fire and Rescue Service members were needed to prevent potentially widespread damage.

Thanks to everyone who sent photographs and the video. Please keep sending us pictures or video of any incidents you think readers or online viewers would be interested in seeing.
