Two men reportedly had an argument outside the Elm Court Youth and Community Centre car park on Mutton Lane, at around 9.30am, and one of the men 'was pushed' and left with a broken wrist.

Det Con Ian Waldock, from Borehamwood local crime unit, said: "This incident took place in the car park while both men were waiting for a boot sale to open.

A Watford man has been arrested on suspicion of assault and a public order offence.

The 55-year-old has been released under investigation while enquiries continue.
