Nine people have been arrested in Milton Keynes after a mass brawl between two groups.

Police were called to the fighting at around 6.4pm on Wednesday afternoon near the Furzton Lake pub.

One of the groups had got out of a black van, while the other was on foot.

It is believed that weapons including planks of wood, baseball bats and metal poles were used in the altercation, and there was also a report that a firearm was discharged.

Supt Gez Chiariello, LPA Commander for Milton Keynes, said:

"Fortunately this type of incident is rare in Milton Keynes. I would like to reassure the public that this type of behaviour will not be tolerated and we will do all we can to bring those responsible to justice."

"This was an incident involving two groups of people who were reported to be carrying weapons. It was also reported that a firearm may have been discharged during the incident.

I would appeal to anyone who believes they may know the identity of anyone who may have been involved in the incident to come forward and speak to police on the non-emergency number 101."
