POLICE were called to reports of seven males fighting on Phipps Bridge estate last Sunday. 

Officers from the South West BCUs Violence Suppression Unit were called to the estate at around 5.50 pm on October 18. 

VCU Officers soon arrived and conducted a search of the area on foot and in a vehicle and came upon a group of four youths matching the description given by a member of public.

One member of the group was seen to discard a knife which was immediately recovered from officers where he was stopped. 

Wimbledon Times:

The young male was arrested for possession of an offensive weapon and transported to police custody. At this time the male has been released under investigation and enquiries continue.

A spokesperson for Met Police said: "Thanks to the information supplied by a member of public and the work of the officers involved one more knife has been seized and taken off the street.

"If you have information about knife crime in your area which could save a life, no matter how small the information, report it."
