Peculiar thing the other night. My wife and I were woken at around 1 o'clock in the morning to the sound of what I can only describe as rowdy, drunken yobs who were lingering on the road outside like a wet fart. After having opened our bedroom window and respectfully asking the group to move on (to which I received a hurl of abuse and a beer bottle narrowly missing one of our front windows) I went outside to confront them. Yob #1, who I presumed was the alpha yob of the clan did not seem to be capable of reasoning and instead hurled abuse in my face. Realising there was no other option but to call the police, I turned back to the house before noticing an array of lights coming closer down the road. Seven masked vigilantes on bikes raced onto the scene and strategically placed themselves around the group, closing in around them in an organised manner. When the yobs attempted to resist the faceless cyclists, they were promptly pepper sprayed and restrained. The yobs were then forced to apologise, which they did, reluctantly. Justice! When the yobs had left the scene I thanked anonymous vigilantes and asked them who they were to which one of them replied - "we are the night riders." They swiftly cycled off down the road, leaving me outside the font of the house with a sense of total bemusement. Is this the answer Lewes has been waiting for? Our very own superheroes? Well, perhaps that's a tad hyperbolic, but I say good luck to them! It's about time someone took the trash out!

Vigilantes? Perhaps we can have gangs of them fighting it out in the streets of Lewes. That should do the town's reputation good.

I think you will find that pepper spray is illigal in the UK.

Fellow Lewesians, mock and criticise all you like, I would be doing the same if I had not seen it with my own eyes. @Bemused Rancher - i couldn't tell you who he was (or any of them for that matter) as I'm as bemused as you are

Good luck to them. Although not sure how the rozzers will take to people doing the job they themselves should be doing.
