    Chemical incident my arse.

    It was two girls fighting and a person sprayed one with pepper spray…simple as that, so dreadfully poor reporting here yourthurrock.
    Now all the Emergency services claim under funding…bulls**t, use your resources better. Did it really need a fire engine (and full crew) 4 ambulances and 2 police cars…No.

    You don’t see that kind of response when the police pepper spray someone.

    What a waste of resources. But easy to hang around, dramatise it than deal with another real issue.
