A gang of teens fought with weapons near a primary school.

At 3.30pm on Wednesday, February 11, police were called to the fight involving half a dozen men in their late teens in Glamis Street, Bognor, near St Mary's School.

A Sussex Police statement said: “It was reported that some of the youths were in possession of weapons such as sticks or belts.

“As police arrived the group dispersed in various directions, and three men, one aged 21 from South London, and two aged 21 and 25 of no fixed addresses, were arrested nearby on suspicion of affray.”

They were interviewed and released on police bail until March 10 while enquiries continue.

How can this article claim that the fight involved 'half a dozen men in their late teens' when the three arrested were 21 and 25? Also how can they get away with describing them as youths? This is another badly written piece of journalism berating and and demonising the younger generation for a criminal act perpetrated by adults. No wonder young people are given a bad press.
