Retired newsagent Raymond Hall, aged 79, told the The Sheffield Star: “It is horrendous. We’ve been thinking about moving and we were here 40 years. I can’t believe that one family can cause so much havoc.”

The paper said that people have contacted it to offer their help to the victim Craig Kinsella, 34, who was found with extensive injuries sustained in "horrific attacks" by the family of ice-cream sellers.
