Five women arrested in Hatfield brawl

TEN clubbers – half of which were WOMEN – were arrested after a brawl at a Hatfield venue.

One onlooker said there was a “big scrap” and beer bottles were thrown as hundreds of people were enjoying themselves at the Forum on Saturday evening.

Paramedics were called to the University of Hertfordshire bar complex shortly before 2am on Sunday as three men received injuries, with one needing to have hospital treatment to have his hand stitched up.

Detective constable Mike Lawrence said: “There was a large number of people in the venue that evening and I believe there were witnesses to this incident who we have not yet spoken to.

“If you have any information which could help our enquiries please contact police on 0845 33 00 222 as soon as possible.”

Of the 10 arrested, eight were from Borehamwood, one from Croxley Green and one had no fixed abode, all ranging in age from 18 to 22.
