  1. When are they going to do something about these people. They terrorise neighbourhoods in central Harrogate and nothing seems to be happening…

  2. I was there. Seen and heard a lot of it.
    A couple as it seemed, shouting and swearing at eachother. He was on the ground with his knees up A s I walked past with my 6yo son. She was kicking the hell out of his legs. He got up and went into the middle of the road and was hurling abusive language at eachother! When I got into the shop the police turned ups nd an ambulance. Was horrific. There’s absolutely no need. No respect for eachother or for the general public especially with children around. Just scruffy. No need at all. It’s unfortunate that people got hurt but they both played a big part in trying to knock eachother out…
