Days after the incident, fresh footage emerged showing a group of girls going berserk in the village’s local Co-op.

Staff at the supermarket said the girls took cans of Red Bull without paying.

This was followed by further incidents in the village, including a fracas when three youths were removed from a train.

In response to the disorder Arun District Council has pulled in private security guards to try and stem the disorder.

It has now emerged that a group of criminals known as the West Coast Nominals were using the train line to ransack shops of cigarettes, vapes, alcohol and food .

British Transport Police said they had been targeting the group over the last two years.

Locals have voiced their dismay, with many accusing the authorities of not doing enough to keep the streets safe.

Mehdi Gholamzadeh, who owns businesses in village, said to the Mail: “It has been getting worse and worse the last few months.

“When they get together it’s like 20 of them, they nick things from Tesco and Co-op.

“They are often drinking and smashed the bottles on the road. I had to get four flat tyres changed because of it.

“It has been going on for seven to eight months now, it has been getting worse and worse.”

Brothers Archie and George Tilley were just 13 and 14 when they attacked carer Alan Willson as he tried to protect a boy whose frisbee they nicked.

Mr Willson suffered significant and life-changing brain injuries after he was battered with a wooden log.

He is still unable to walk or talk and has “no mental capacity” after the Easter Sunday attack in 2021. The brothers were jailed for the attack on the defenceless dad.

The Argus reported the brothers were linked to the West Coast nominals group in the past.

Following recent incidents police launched Operation Precinct, in a bid to reduce disorder in the area.

Chief Inspector Will Keating-Jones said: “Residents and business owners are at the heart of the Barnham community and so it’s important we hear their views.

“The meeting was constructive and we were able to discuss the huge amount of work which has already taken place to tackle the issues which concern residents during their day-to-day lives.

“We listened to residents’ feedback and explained what Sussex Police, and our partners, plan to do to make sure everyone in Barnham feels safe and is safe.”

“Our team has also worked extremely hard to issue four Community Protection Warnings (CPWs), which give the offender a set of conditions they must adhere to.

“If they breach the warning, it can escalate to a Community Protection Notice obtained through the courts.

“Sussex Police will continue to identify and robustly deal with those committing crimes in the area. We will ensure that the hard work continues.”
