The rioters looked like these, but with hoods

Police in Rhyl say they are looking for an "extremely young girl" after an amusement arcade in the seaside town was terrorised and "taken apart" by a gang of children wearing hooded tops.

The girl in question, who is thought to have been the alleged arch-criminal Karen Lewis, aged 4, from Shrewsbury, is reported to have been the leader of the Mob, numbering about three, who laid siege to Les Harker's Amusements during a recent holiday.

The crew, which also included 'a very elderly member' who may have been Karen's granddad, all wore 'hoodie-style tops' to conceal their identities from the CCTV cameras used in the arcade.

A male employee asked the Mob to remove their hoods in line with the arcade's policy to discriminate against 'hoodies' and young children, but was met with a "torrent of abuse and crying".

Machines were "rocked" and "forcefully nudged", and other games generally "roughly treated" as children "ran amok", much to the displeasure of other patrons, according to staff at Harker's, and the police were eventually called.

The manager of the complex defended the action and told the BBC the employee had only been following instructions.

"It's absolutely shameful what goes on here. The brats all come in here with that devil-may-care attitude and ruin everything for other people who are just trying to enjoy themselves. I remember this crowd of hooligans well. They had pink hoodies. It was absolute carnage. My staff tell me the 2p machine is a write-off."

Police are investigating.
