A Chafford Hundred pub was the scene of a mass brawl involving 100 people.
The Grays Harvester, which sits on the junction of the North Stifford Arterial Road and Clockhouse Lane, had a window smashed as a large fight took place outside it on Friday night.Lovely! Well, it is Grays…
An eyewitness, who lives opposite the pub and restaurant, told the Gazette there was a huge crowd of people.Well, should be easy to provide descriptions, then?
“It’s very unusual to see that sort of thing around here. I’ve never seen anything like it before.
“There is a rumour that gipsies were involved, but I think that’s just a silly rumour.”Really? Well, it would indeed be quite uncharacteristic for them, wouldn’t it?
Police were called to the pub at 10.15pm after reports of a disturbance.
On arrival, they were forced to call for back-up due to the number of people involved.
The crowd were eventually dispersed, however, and neighbourhood officers patrolled the area for some time after the incident to ensure trouble did not flare up again.
No arrests were made and there were no reports of any injuries.‘No arrests were made’..?
Hmmm, maybe those rumours are spot on, then…
