There was another bang and then the tone of the chanting changed. The noise of the crowd changed and there was a sense of panic.

Another bang went off then the police riot vans moved in very quickly.

I did see bottles being thrown into the air, although I'm not sure who they were directed at.

Nike is yet to respond to Newsbeat's requests for a statement, but Dr Marsh has shown us her emailed response.

The letter, from a Nike representative, said: "We here at Nike respect and appreciate every one of our consumers no matter what their race, age or gender is."

A Nottinghamshire Romany Gypsy said the term used on the products was offensive and damaging.
