A fight broke out between a group of teenagers in Nailsea on Friday evening.

Police attended after a number of people reported a disturbance in Millennium Park at around 9pm.

No weapons were involved but one boy suffered a minor cut to his face.

A spokesman for Avon and Somerset police said: “We received a call at about 9pm on Friday night to reports of disturbance involving a number of youngsters, some of whom were fighting.

“A small number of officers attended and the youngsters left the area after we issued a dispersal order.

“Despite rumours of weapons none were seen or confiscated.

“We will be speaking to schools, which the youths are believed to attend.”

Police ran taster sessions in the park throughout the summer last year after an increase in antisocial behaviour in the area in 2017.

Officers are appealing for help from the community to run it again this year.
