Officers spoke to a number of people at the scene who indicated that witnesses had recorded footage on mobile phones. 

Detective Inspector Ron Lock said:

“I’m keen to hear from any members of the public who have either recorded footage of this incident, or who have seen this being shared on social media platforms. 

“My officers are continuing to speak to a number of teenagers and their parents to identify everyone who was involved.

"Thankfully no-one was seriously hurt.

“Officers from the Neighbourhood Policing Team will be patrolling the area and working with local schools and I’d encourage teenagers or parents who have any concerns to speak to one of these uniformed officers.
