1981 Toxteth riots

any one remember them......I got to thinking about them after seeing Toxteth mentioned some where else

We all had our leave cancelled and it felt like we were on duty forever..I was working in the emergency Theatres at the time and we were so busy

I remember the '81 Riots Lizzie, and the one only a couple of years back too..The 1981 Riots were a few days when that area hit the headlines , lots of the Public and the Police were injured and many many beautiful Georgian & Victorian Properties were destroyed and lost forever.
I think whenever Large demonstrations or Riots occur a lot is down to outside reactionist movements manipulating the situation for their own political aims. They then move out again and  hard working  dedicated
Public Servants such as yourself are then left to pick up the pieces and try and mend it again. Forum Index -> Liverpool and Merseyside History & Nostalgia
