Gangs of Hastings

I've never been to Hastings, but based on everything I'd previously read I was quite surprised to learn how much it must have in common with the back alleys of Manchester.

From The Argus:
A teenage chess sensation was mugged by an eight-strong gang shortly after taking part in a major competition.

Grandmaster Farhad Tahirov, 19, was kicked and punched and had £1,000 stolen from him by the gang after the 82nd Hastings International Chess Congress.
Where was Jane Tennison?
