Statement on disorder in Luton town centre this evening: Cllr Hazel Simmons, Leader of Luton Council, said: “I am absolutely appalled by the scenes in Luton town centre this evening. Violent behaviour like this is unacceptable in this town. “Tonight we should all be sitting back and celebrating what was a fantastic spectacle earlier today with thousands of people coming out and enjoying a wonderful carnival event in Wardown Park. Instead we have to condemn the actions of a small minority of people who have shown complete and utter disrespect to the town and its people. “I would like to thank the police and emergency services for their actions this evening and I will be fully supporting the strongest punishment for those responsible.”
