Crawley Borough Council has condemned the violence which led to seven arrests in Bewbush following a fight involving 50 youths.

Police and paramedics were called to Dorsten Square at around 7.45pm on Sunday (July 27) after more than 20 calls from residents reporting the fight.

Now the council has said it will not allow a minority of people to jeopardise the work which has been put into the community over the past five years.

A council spokesman said: “The council is disappointed to hear of the public disorder which took place in Bewbush on Sunday and is working closely with our partners at Sussex Police.

“Like the police, the council won’t tolerate this kind of behaviour on our streets and will do all it can to help resolve any issues and reassure residents.

“A lot of positive work has taken place in Bewbush over the last five years including regeneration and work with young people.

“The neighbourhood has a great sense of community and we won’t allow the minority to jeopardise this for the majority.”

Witnesses or anyone with information can contact police via email 101@sussex.pnn.police.uk or call 101 quoting serial 1628 of 27/07.

Alternatively, call the independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
