Huge 30-person fight on West London estate with baseball bats and knives

Officers from the Met Police were called to break up a huge 30 person fight on the Dalgarno Estate in Kensington and Chelsea after numerous worried calls from the public.

According to a Tweet by the Met Police Task Force 30 young males armed with knives and weapons were fighting and caused damage to a vehicle.

A Rambo type knife found was found on one male plus two baseball bats and another knife were also found in the area.

Police revealed details of the disorder on Sunday morning (November 15) at around 6.30am on social media.

A total of seven arrests were made for a range of suspected offences including drugs supply, offensive weapon and violent disorder.

While the exact time of the fight has not been revealed yet, in a separate Tweet at 1.43am on Sunday, Kensington and Chelsea police advised that a Section 60 order - giving police greater stop and search powers - was in place in a part of the borough which covered the Dalgarno Estate.

Police described the order being implemented due to "disorder" and was in place from 11pm on Saturday (November 14) through to 5am on Sunday.

The Met Task Force is made up of the territorial support group, marine policing unit, dog support and the mounted branch.

Police have already dealt with two serious incidents in the area since Friday evening.

On Friday, November 13, at 5.52pm police were also called to a stabbing on the World's End Estate on Blantyre Street, in Chelsea.

The victim was a 17-year-old boy found who was rushed to hospital, but his injuries are not believed to be life threatening.

Minutes earlier, at 5.36pm, Hammersmith and Fulham police were called to Tynemouth Street, in Fulham, where a 14-year-old boy had been stabbed.

The two stabbings were less than a mile apart from each other.
