Kent Police is investigating following reports of youth fighting in Broadstairs on Wednesday.

Complaints were made of a disturbance during the town’s music and fireworks event. One witness said there was a need for more security after volunteers at the event were subjected to abuse.

Many bystanders were, however, unaware of the issue and praised organisers for a great night.

A Kent Police spokesman said: “Kent Police is investigating a disturbance involving a group of youths which is reported to have taken place in Victoria Parade, Broadstairs, at around 9.15pm on Wednesday 19 July.

”No serious injuries were reported and, at present, no arrests have been made.

“Enquiries into the matter are ongoing. “
