TWO men who fought in the street with England cricketer Ben Stokes armed themselves with bottles and a metal pole from a road sign, a court heard yesterday. Witnesses said they saw Ryan Ali, 28, and Ryan Hale, 27, with the makeshift weapons just before Stokes knocked them both out. Laura Sweeney told jurors that Hale looked “in control” as he searched for a weapon. She added: “He broke off the leg of the road sign, he seemed to know exactly what he was doing. “For someone I thought was really quite drunk, he was fast and coordinated.” Gordon Cole, defending Stokes, said the all-rounder “knocked a bottle out of Ryan Ali’s hand” during the incident. He then punched Hale before pursuing and punching Ali.

A MUM lives in fear because she has been forced to raise her children in a London tower block which is full of gang members who fight in the stairwell. Mum-of-two Morgan is so “anxious” about people on the estate that she has to watch her children out of a window when they leave her home in Croydon. She has banned Blake, 10, and Drew, eight, from playing further than she can see because she is concerned about the “weird people” who live in the block. Morgan, a teaching assistant, will appear on Channel 5’s Tower Block Kids at 9pm this evening to describe life in the high rise block. She lives with their dad Gareth and her children - who share a room in the two-bedroom flat. Blake claims they are gang members younger than him who are "looking for fights" and Drew claims the corridors smell of "dead bodies" because men urinate indoors. The youngsters are also “really worried” about living in the block following the tragic Grenfell Tower fire … [Read more...] about Mum’s fears for her kids, aged 8 and 10, who live among gang feuds and see ‘people urinating in corridors’ of London tower block
