CRITICISM BY MAYOR
"While it was apparent that the majority of the people in Queen Street yesterday desired to celebrate the coming of peace in an orderly fashions, the actions of a section of the revellers could only be described as 'disgusting," said the Mayor, Mr. Allum this morning.
"As far as I could see, most people were well-behaved, but I do regret that there should have been so many incidents involving the breakage of bottles and windows," added , Mr. Allum. "The inconsiderate, thoughtless actions of a small section of the crowd marred the pleasure of the majority. "The behaviour of this section yesterday was in line with the wanton mischief it causes in the community in normal times," he added.
