Luton Carnival: three men guilty of violent disorder

Fights broke out in St George's Square after the carnival had finished last May

Three men have been convicted of causing violence and disorder at the Luton Carnival last year.

Fights broke out in St George's Square on Sunday 29 May, after the carnival had finished.

Four people were taken to hospital with stab wounds and several others were injured.

Nathan Kiasala, 20, and Jason Kiasala, 18, both from Luton, pleaded guilty to causing grievous bodily harm, possession of an offensive weapon, and violent disorder.

Daniel Idiabeta, 19, and also from Luton, was found guilty of violent disorder and possession of an offensive weapon.

They're due to be sentenced on 24 September.

This has been a complex investigation into what was completely unacceptable behaviour.

I hope this sends a stark reminder to others that we will not tolerate those who wish to bring harm to our communities, they will be caught and made to pay for their actions.

– Detective Inspector Iain Morgan
