My colleague Ben Quinn, who’s Eltham in south east London, has rung in to say that hundreds of white men have been dispersed by the police from the high street.

He says: “The men were moved on after being served with a section 27 dispersal order. It’s not a kettle but it’s designed to move the large group away in different directions.”

One local man told him that messages had been posted on Facebook groups “and the word spread that there were going to be groups of black youths coming from neighbouring areas, such as Lewisham.

The man went on to claim that “everyone knows this is a white area and we’re surrounded by black areas. We’ve a reputation for being racist but it’s not fair.”
