What an ugly, incorrect and nasty story to run. I was at the Thurrock Festival. Dont get me wrong i’m often critical of what goes on in Thurrock, but this was a great and wonderful event. It really brought the community together and had so much for everyone to do and enjoy. i saw the police incident on the way home and it was at the White Hart Pub, the police said that some drinkers from the pub had got into a fight with a passer by and got stabbed what did this have to do with the festival. it was no where near the festival. I dont believe that you dont know where it happened and why???? Michael Caey you should be ashamed of yourself, for poor journalism and holding an nasty bigoted agenda. i see from your posts on the site that you attended the festival and are quite happy to showcase the artists for the benefit of your site.
