Pitched battles between Charles 'Wag' McDonald's and ruthless Little Italy hoodlum Charles Sabini's gangs broke out across the city, reaching a climax when eight people were killed here. The Home Secretary and government were so concerned that they quickly introduced a raft of new police powers to deal with such gangs.
