In the latest development the Council have condemned the attacks and the police are trying hard to find them. Despite earlier reports claiming this is an isolated incident comments from local alternative folk indicate this is just a more extreme example of an ongoing problem in Burnley.
Gordon Birtwistle, leader of Burnley Council, said: "We live in a diverse society where people can dress how they want.
"I am horrified that people should feel they can disrupt other people's lives by doing this.
"I think the problem is that kids don't respect other people's views or even other people and this problem has to be addressed in homes and schools."
