The celebrations of St Patrick’s Day in London, Ontario this year became a scene of violence of an unruly mob – they vandalized a TV truck by setting it ablaze.

When firefighters tried to put out the fire, the mob pelted them with stones and empty bottles.

A spokesman of the Fire department has said that the losses could run into hundreds of thousands of dollars.

The rioting took place in the Fanshawe College area which is a problem prone location – unregulated drinking is believed to have been at the root of this behavior of the mob.
