A street in east London was cordoned off this afternoon because someone keeps throwing things from a window.
Guy on bike just rode straight through police cordon. Very serious danger of being hit by an old copy of Country Life* *speculationAdvertisement

It seems that two people, embroiled in an argument have thrown items including magazines, a skateboard and a bike out onto the road out of a first-storey window.
Eyewitnesses say a crowd built up around the cordon in Stoke-Newington to eagerly watch the bizarre incident unfold. Metropolitan Police confirmed that they had to close the High Street near the junction of Church Street. According to ‘a local’ it isn’t the first time this has happened, with it taking two hours to sort out on a previous occasion.

The whole thing was documented on Twitter by Daniel Dalton, whose series of tweets painting a picture of the scene are actually pretty hilariously sarcastic.
Police chase an old man who ducked under the caution tape trying to get to the bank. Old man having none of it. — Daniel Dalton (@wordsbydan) December 1, 2015
Great detail from Daniel, almost feels like you’re there.
