lark in the park

5:30 cops move crew from a13, down freemasons street. We're promised a park to go in. Lots of pushing and shoving from behind. park doesn't look very welcoming - we have to run a gauntlet of irratated coppers through a small gate. Ppl sitting down start getting dragged through. Some really short geezer is picked up by the scruff of his neck and trousers and thrown through gate (by pc py664). Crowd erupts - worst violence of day as people dragged through gate and generally knocked about

Police have announced we can leave 4 at a time in controlled fashion - music is playing and most seem to be hanging around
