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.
