JuliaM points out this story. It really is a classic of BBC non-reporting. Why so cagey ? The closest we get to a hint of what's really going on is this:
All the victims are of "middle eastern appearance", police said.Yep, it sounds like a racial attack, but the libs aren't sure whose victimhood stats are highest, so they're holding off until they can find a way to blame the natives.
Officers now believe the injured men may have been hit on the head with a blunt instrument.
Officers said the suspects, who are believed to be black men, fled the scene after the attack.
