Stratford is a very diverse part of London. “As of the 2011 census, White British is the largest ethnic group in the Stratford and New Town ward, at 21% of the population, followed by Other White at 19% and Black African at 13%.” [Source https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stratford,_London]

Daily Mail:

Westfield shopping centre in Stratford was evacuated by fleeing shoppers tonight after reports of a Boxing Day riot between rival gangs.

The incident came shortly after hundreds of people fled House of Fraser on London’s Oxford Street, where people thought they heard gunfire – a claim later debunked by police.

Social media photos appeared to show a large number of police officers and stewards trying to control crowds on the ground floor of the shopping centre in Westfield.
