Five people have been arrested on suspicion of GBH following a fight in Romford town centre.
Police have confirmed a fight took place with belts used as weapons in South Street this morning.
They originally told the media that a stabbing had taken place and six people had been arrested but they now say this isn’t the case and belts were used instead with only five arrested.
Emergency services were called at 4.15am and took a man in his 20s to hospital.
His injuries aren’t life-threatening or life-changing.
The area around Fiction nightclub was cordoned off earlier this morning.
A spokesperson from Fiction Romford said: “This incident was completely unrelated to Fiction; it happened in another part of the town and one and a half hours after the club was closed.”Tags: stabbing, Romford, Havering, Fiction
