A police officer was assaulted and five people - including a 16-year-old boy - were arrested following a night of violence in Mottingham.

Police, including the Met helicopter and dog unit, were called out to Kimmeridge Road at around 7.10pm last night (April 26) following reports of criminal damage and anti-social behaviour.

While attempting to make an arrest, one officer was assaulted and left with a broken ankle, requiring hospital treatment.

A 16-year-old boy was arrested and bailed until June 3 on suspicion of GBH, resisting arrest and criminal damage.

Student Charlie Roberts, aged 20, of Mayeswood Road, Grove Park, has been charged with obstructing police. He will appear at Bromley Magistrates' Court on May 20.

Officers were then called out to the road for a second time, at 8.20pm, following reports of a fight.

They initially found no trace but the air support unit later saw a male in possession of what was believed to be a baseball bat, leaving the area in a car.

That vehicle was stopped and three people were arrested on suspicion of possession of offensive weapons. They were bailed until May 6.
