Reports of knife-wielding fight outside Gidea Park station


On lookers were shocked to see a fight that smashed up a shop outside of Gidea Park station this evening. Police attended and a man was chased and arrested for affray.

A witness at the scene told The Havering Daily: “I was in the shop opposite the station, when all of a sudden a guy runs into the shop followed by a few others. They started to attack him and in the process the shop was ransacked. I managed to get out and I moved towards the station but the fight moved outside too. A couple of them had Japanese style blades. It was really scary”
