- 6:00pm; An odd police manoeuvre has just taken place when at one end of the street party, police withdrew vehicles and then drove back close to the third sound system. Then, a green police van tried to slowly drive into the party, but people stood calmly in front of it whilst protecting the sound system. People still dancing, and apart from this incident, the athmosphere is still good and calm.

- 6:30pm: The main sound system has just packed up and put away. The second sound system is still blasting away, and people maintain the party athmosphere with dancing and drumming.

- 7:15pm: One sound system is still playing and people dancing around it. There is also a big circle of people drumming and fire juggling. Police presence seems to have diminished, so people are still chilling and partying without any problems.

- 7:45: It is now raining, but there are still over 250 people in the street party dancing to the drums and the last sound system. A police helicopter is now hovering overhead, but there is a great athmosphere of release in the party, after the days of tension and the constant avalanche of media mayhem. Lots of smiles in the crowd, but people still worried about all the people arrested who have bail, and court appearances tomorrow and Wednesday.

- 9:30pm: There are still around 100 people at the RTS, but the street party is now winding down. The situation in the area is calm.
