Police had to step in to break up a huge gang fight in Romford last night.
According to Scotland Yard, officers were called at 8.45pm yesterday - December 29 - to reports of "a large group fighting" in Wideford Drive near the former Oldchurch Hospital site.
Officers apparently dispersed the group, and remained in the area to prevent further incidents.
A spokesperson said: "Officers carried out a thorough search of the location and surrounding areas and could find nobody with any injuries."
There were no arrests, and investigations into the circumstances continue.
Video footage circulating online showed a man who appeared to be holding a large knife approach a crowd of people.
