The Officers can be seen being hit with a shower of colours as the firework exploded around them, the group of youngsters the runoff laughing.
Users on social media took to the comment sections of the videos to air their views on the attack, Notadoomster wrote: “And yet the police would protect this lot the next day on a blm march. Shows our police “service” is completely twisted!”
Another Twitter user by the name of RJM wrote: “This is what happens when Police take a knee, dance at pride events and drive around in rainbow cars. Lack of respect, lack of fear of arrest and lack of fear of justice system.”
