Two 15-year-old boys have been stabbed in a large disturbance in Essex.
Police were called just at 19:00 BST on Friday to reports of a large group of people fighting, including some with weapons, in Chalkwell Esplanade near Chalkwell railway station, Westcliff.
A police helicopter helped officers and British Transport Police with searches and dispersing the crowd.
The boys’ injuries are not life-threatening. Two men have been arrested.
One of the 15-year-olds was injured in the head and leg, while the other was stabbed in the arm.
Police said an 18-year-old man from Basildon was arrested on suspicion of causing grievous bodily harm and possession of drugs, while a 20-year-old man from South Ockendon was arrested on suspicion of affray.
They remain in custody for questioning.
