READERS overwhelmingly do not fear a return of soccer violence on the streets of East London, according to an Advertiser websitepoll.

They decided by two-to-one that there is nothing to worry about.

Only 36 per cent were concerned, following the attack we reported two weeks ago in which a Millwall fan was beaten up and stabbed by a gang outside West Ham's ground at Upton Park. Some 64 per cent said they were not worried about soccer violence. The poll has now closed.

This week's Website poll asks if Gordon Brown was right not to fight for compensation for IRA bomb victims of Libyan Semtex.
