Man arrested and two injured after Highbridge 'mass brawl'

A fight in a Highbridge car park involving up to 30 youths led to one person being arrested and two people being rushed to hospital.

Police were called to Bank Street car park in the centre of the town on Tuesday evening (February 10th) after what local residents described as a "mass brawl" involving various dangerous weapons.

Police spokesman Wayne Baker told "Police were called to a disturbance at 6pm in Bank Street car park."

"One man was taken to hospital with arm injuries and one person was arrested. CCTV footage of the incident has also been studied and our enquiries are ongoing. We would ask anyone with information to get in contact."

Members of Burnham's online discussion forums described what they saw in the town centre. One user states: "Approximately 20 to 30 young adults decided to fight in Bank Street car park... their choice of weapon? Metal bars, bricks and concrete blocks."
