Two teenage girls were questioned, but no arrests were made.
Police were then called to Town Square at about 4.20pm following reports of another mass punch-up.
It is believed it broke out between Brooke House and the entrance to Primark. Officers questioned three people about the incident. Again no arrests were made.Well, that's Essex for you! And Essex police...
Commenting on the first incident, one witness said: “There was about 40 of them. No one would help, they were too scared to get involved. It was all out of control.
“One of the girls had both hands full of hair extensions.”
Another said:“They were proper chavs. Like top notch chavs. They clearly have no respect for themselves or others.”Lovely, eh?
