Yorkshire police head off pillow fight anarchy | The Register

The West Yorkshire city had been almost drowned just a few weeks ago when a flashmob staged a 350-person water fight which resulted in the trashing of an ornamental garden and thousands of pounds worth of damage.

The bedding-powered bundle was scheduled for the weekend at Woodhouse Moor in Leeds, prompting fears of further mayhem, not to mention mass allergy outbreaks.

But this time the authorities swung into action, and after desperate pleas from the police, the organisers removed the ad from Facebook.

There had been fears that pillow-touting scofflaws would turn up nevertheless. In the event, nothing happened at all in Leeds this weekend.
