A police officer from Westminster Police has been stabbed after a water fight turned violent.

There seemed to be a large number of people gather from a spontaneous water fight.

At around 20:40hrs, parts of the increasingly large crowd become hostile to police and items – including bottles – were thrown towards officers.

Two police officers suffered injuries; one stabbed and one from a bottle. Both have been taken to hospital for treatment. Their injuries are described as not life threatening.

Police are aware of two other people (no further details at this time) suffering stab wounds. Both have been taken to hospital, and officers await an update on their conditions.

Officers remain at scene and continue to deal with the incident.
