Two men were badly beaten up with wooden sticks when a violent pub brawl spilled out into the street on Friday night.
Police were called just after 10pm to the New Angel Inn pub, Broadway, Rainham after reports of a group of men fighting.
Ambulance crews also attended and took one man to hospital following the attack, which the police are treating as GBH.
Cllr Jeff Tucker witnessed two men getting beaten up with long wooden sticks in Upminster Road South, around the corner from the pub.
“I saw a group of blokes come up, probably aged about 25-30,” he said. “Two of them had long bits of wood and they hit this guy and kicked him – he was a giant, at least 6”7 – they really beat him up.

“There was another bloke on the floor for a while covered in blood, but he wasn’t as badly injured.
“We haven’t had this behaviour for a long time in the village. I don’t know how it started but violence is not the answer and we don’t tolerate it.”
