Cllr Alan Lawther said: “I am very concerned that such a large amount of people took part in this crime. I was appalled that so many people believed that they should take part in this attack.
“There cannot be any justification for carrying out a crime like this. I hope the police arrest and charge all those who took part in this attack.
“If anybody has any information about this attack then I would urge them to contact the police.”
