An early-morning fight in a steelworks factory has led to an arrest for GBH and a man being taken to hospital.
Police were called to AGP Steelworks in Spilsby Road, Romford, at 8am after a man was seen staggering from the building covered in blood.
One man was arrested for grievous bodily harm (GBH).
Another man was taken to hospital and is being treated for head injuries.
Police have been at the scene all day and the factory remains cordoned off.
A worker from Tom Swainland & Sons, a construction company opposite the factory, saw an injured man of about 30 stagger out from the building covered in blood at 8am.
An AGP Steelworks worker named James told the Recorder “absolutely nothing” had happened and he had “no idea” why the police were there.

In December the company was ordered to pay £3,000 for work outside licensed hours that forced neighbours to complain of loud grinding and workers shouting as late as 11pm and as early as 5am.
