Police are appealing for witnesses following an assault on two teenage girls in Hatfield.

The girls, aged 17 and 15, were on the playing fields at Birchwood Leisure Centre in Hatfield on Sunday March 25th at around 3.30 pm when they were approached by a group of other girls who assaulted them following an argument.

The 17 year old required treatment for head injuries and the 13 year old required treatment for fractured ribs.

Detective Constable Gerry Ward said: "This was a nasty incident which has left the victims in shock and they both required hospital treatment. We are determined to catch those responsible. I would urge anyone who may have witnessed the incident or saw a large group of girls in the area at the time of the incident, to get in touch with us immediately."

Six people have been arrested and bailed in connection.
