POLICE have confirmed at least part of what was a violent incident in Stanford-le-Hope at the weekend.
The incident happened close to the Inn on the Green pub and is reportedly part of a wider series of events.
It was reported to Thurrock Nub News that a group of youths were ejected by security staff at the pub in the town centre and later became involved in a clash with people leaving a function at the nearby Regent suite.
A witness told Nub news: "We were advised there were a group of around 15 in The Inn on the Green causing agro and got kicked out.
"I've heard they beat a kid up near St Margaret's Church , and then around five of them picked on my two friends on London London Road.
"It has been reported to police, but so far they've not responded. My friends should both should have gone to hospital as they were knocked unconscious, but only one went and was x-rayed as he bust his knee and is now on crutches. He also needs dental work."
The police did not have as much information, telling Nub News just about the initial assault - though they have been unable to find either victim or assailants.
