  • 1000 roughs versus 30 Constables mass fight Frying Pan Brick Lane 31st July 1887

    I saw the prisoner running, and chased him to the Frying-pan public-house, Brick Lane other constables came up, and he was taken with great difficulty to the station about a thousand of the roughest characters came out, and we had to place him in the public house until about 30 constables were fetched to beat back the crowd.

    This incident was heard at the Old Bailey. I have searched the BNA website but can find no record of it, thought this would have been news worthy?

    Or was this just another day in Whitechapel?
