Ten-year-old held by police after boy, 8, is shot

"An eight-year-old boy remains critically ill after a shooting at a travellers' site in South Tyneside.

Police said the victim was in a "critical but stable" condition after undergoing surgery on Friday night.

A 10-year-old boy was arrested on suspicion of wounding following the incident, thought to have happened at West Pastures in Boldon."


And the Government wonders why nobody wants a "travellers" site nearby
"Appealing for witnesses Supt Napier also sought to reassure the public.

"I would like to reassure the public that we do not have someone wandering around with a gun shooting children," he said."

Yes you do ! Muppet :x
tsk tsk Ugly really needs to start offering discounts to travellers so the self culling programe can be more succesful :twisted:
Over wails of the "oh the humanity, who will think of the children", what's the betting that this (no doubt illegal) firearm will cause a cry for yet more gun control and/or more weapons banned from sale.

We'll be shooting clay pidgeons with cap guns next....


There's an article in this week's Police Review concerning the 'myths' surrounding 'pik..'...sorry, 'Gentlemen of the Showman's Guild'. Look's like the feature's editor should have held off for a while.
Sowmans Guild and 'p***y c**ts' are a different breed. Had dealings with both and the p***ys are just scum. Plod are too afaid to raid their sites de to pressure from the PC brigade, utter bollocks.
Being reported now that the 8 year old is suffering from shotgun wounds.
But at least the police have a description of the getaway vehicle.

It's partial to carrots and answers to Dobbin.
no humans involved hopefully starts a blood feud and culls the numbers.

they hate us and don't give a shite about the rest of the population why should we care if they wipe themselves out.
maybe the people who incouraged inla to wipe itself out could have a word :twisted:
Under E.U. rules ( Euro Directive 368/09) the word "pikey" is no longer allowed. They have to be addressed as Caravan Utilising Nomadic Travellers or C.U.N.Ts
