‘Mod scooter invasion to mark 50th anniversary of riots’ reports the Clacton Gazette

Hundreds of scooters will invade Clacton seafront this weekend to mark the 50th anniversary of the infamous Clacton Riots.

Modern-day mods from all over the country are expected to roar into the resort.

It’s half a century since the ‘mods and rockers’ clashes of 1964.

Organiser Robin Quartermain, of Chelmsford Scooter Club, promised this Sunday’s invasion would be friendly.

“People are coming from all over the place - London, Essex, Norfolk and even further afield," he said.

“We are expecting at lead 500 scooters.”

The convoy sets off from Chelmsford on Sunday morning before picking up more riders at Colchester United’s Community Stadium and reaching Clacton by midday.
