Well this one is bound to go to P&R anyway. Funny I see no description of the assailants. What do you want to bet they are Muslims? Lots of these types of attacks lately.

Looks a bit like the attack in NYC but without motorcycles.

I went to an American high school in England in the mid-80's. American's were always getting beat up by locals. Kids used to throw rocks at our school bus. One time a bus load of us were coming back from a football game (yes, we had American football over there) and we stopped at a rest stop. Another bus full of drunk soccer hooligans pulled in after us. They started assaulting our cheerleaders and a HUGE fight broke out. High school kids vs. hooligans. It was ugly. They liked us during tourist season, but after that we became targets. Americans are not well-liked among the youth of England. The older generation still have a lot of respect, but you really had to watch your back with the younger guys. I put up with a lot of stuff over there...spit on, cursed at...all because I am American. There were stretches of time where the embassy would advise all US citizens to stay at home.
