Four men were arrested in connection with two violent incidents on Friday evening.

Police were made aware of an assault in Grange Road, Felmersham at around 9pm on 27 August.

They were later called to a violent disorder in Putnoe Lane at approximately 11.55pm.

The four men were reported as fighting, which resulted in a number of minor injuries.

They were all arrested on suspicion of violent disorder and assault for both incidents.

They have since been bailed.
