All four gangs were against one another, none had any allies. The war was the biggest gang war ever to take place in London.
   
 
The war was declared and planned by the Bethnal Green Mob gang leader, [[Charlie Jolson]], who stirred up the carnage by using [[Mark Hammond]] to attack each other gang simultaneously. Other key participants of the war were [[Jake Jolson]] and [[Frank Carter]]. The main bulk of the war only lasted for a single day in [[2002]], but it would have long lasting consequences for all involved. It was a bigger war than the [[Gang War of 2004]], which followed two years later.

[[Image:BethnalGreenMob.jpg|Charlie Jolson and his Bethnal Green Mob heavies.|right|thumb|300px]]All four gangs had never really got on, but they stayed out of each others way. Most were even unaware that Charlie was still in business as some believed he had retired from the gangster life altogether. In [[2002]], Charlie decided that it was time to wipe out each gang from the city, so he came up with a scheme to bring an end to them all. Wanting to avoid his own gang getting involved, Charlie decided to use [[Mark Hammond]], an ex member of the Collins gang. Charlie knew Mark was a well trained gangster and decided to use him to stir up trouble. Mark was released from prison for an armed robbery in 2002. Two months after his release, Charlie instigated his plan. In order to get Mark to work for him, Charlie decided to kidnap his wife and son, so he could blackmail Mark into doing jobs for him. Charlie ordered the kidnapping of his wife, [[Suzie Hammond]] and his son, [[Alex Hammond]]. He sent some of his heavies to carry out the job. It didn't go so well however and Suzie ended up getting killed in the attempted kidnapping. Alex however was taken away but Mark followed them to [[Charlie's Warehouse|Charlie's warehouse]]. Mark however was ambushed at the warehouse and Charlie began to put his plan into place.

Charlie had arranged certain jobs that he wanted Mark to carry out in order to make his plan work. His plan was to use Mark to weaken each gang, cause carnage between the three other gangs and then hand Mark over to them on a boat he owned called the [[Sol Vita]]. Earning each gangs respect and trust by capturing the man responsible for causing them so many problems, Charlie would then lure them onto the boat in which he would plant a [[bomb]]. With each gang leader present, Charlie would flee the ship, detonate the bomb and blow them all up, eliminating his enemies from London once and for all and regaining complete control of the city.

The Yardies retaliated against the Triads as they believed they had been responsible for the shipment leak to the police. They sent a large group of men down to Chinatown where they engaged in a full on gang war. Chaos erupted and gangsters from both sides were massacred. Frank Carter attended to the urgent call with backup SO19 units and they managed to bring the scene under control. A large number of gangsters from both gangs were massacred however and all of them were either killed or arrested.
