Police in east London have seized knives and made arrests after a house party in Dagenham descended into a street brawl.
As many as 300 people were involved.
The crowd of between 200-300 house party visitors was dispersed, with no reported injuries.
Two teenage boys have been arrested and three large knives confiscated including a long hunting knife.
The Met Police said officers were called to reports of a ‘large fight’ in Oxlow Lane just after 11 pm Saturday night.
They’ve arrested a 15-year-old boy for assaulting a police officer and a 17-year-old for possession of an offensive weapon.
Both are being questioned at an east London police station this morning.
Inspector Jason O’Donohue said:
Three large knives were recovered by my officers as they worked to disperse a very large and unpredictable crowd following a private house party. By getting these knives off the street when they did, my officers have helped save lives and prevent another needless tragedy.
