Youth gangs in the area

Just making sure everyone is aware of the recent spike over the last 6 months of a gang of youths that's been randomly assaulting people between Lewes and Seaford. The wider group is made up of about 20 youths aged 14-19. The kids come from Lewes, Newhaven and Seaford, with 5-8 kids from each town. The Police know the names of these individuals and many have been arrested only to return to the streets because of our laws. Attacks have been happening during daylight hours in Lewes, not just Seaford and Newhaven with Lewes kids participating in the assults.
Citizens should keep alert, parents should speak to their kids about this. Many of the victims are other kids, not just the poor man assaulted and stabbed in Newhaven in early June we've all heard about. Most of the 8 youths who committed the Newhaven stabbing are from Newhaven themselves. But the wider group of 20, all known to the police, also includes several individuals from Lewes. Parents need to not only alert at this time for the safety of their children (and themselves) but also parents need to make sure their kids aren't part of this gang in one way or the other.
Anyone with information that can help the police should make this available to them for the safety of all in the area.

Times have changed in Lewes. Back in the 80's the Lewes youth wouldn't let the Seahaven divs use the train service to and from Brighton without giving them a good slap just before midnight. Good old days!

Hhhhmmmm Iíve really not seen any evidence of this in lewes, maybe an altercation over the last hummus tub left in Waitrose but not random assaults on the street , just saying , although some did try to ram raid Waitrose the other month but it turned out it was just someone who accidentally reversed their car nto the wine section

Good fences make good neighbours. Although we were usually on the winning side if we had a ruck with boys from another school or town who came onto our boundaries, we enjoyed proving our loyalty in a fight. There really are a lot of softies aren't there? They call it "assault" today. We called them proper beatings and we knew they were deserved. It's a healthy game, nothing more.
