Police were called to deal with a reported bust-up at a family friendly festival in Dartford yesterday evening.

Officers from Kent Police were dispatched to this year's Stone Fete at Stone Recreation Ground following reports of a "disturbance" among revellers with eye-witnesses reporting on social media that a number of "fights" had broken out towards the end of the festivities.

A Kent Police spokesman confirmed their attendance and also said: "Police were called to London Road, Stone at 7.42pm on Sunday, July 7, following a report of a disturbance.

"It is reported that a man assaulted a woman and made threats towards another man.

"Officers attended the scene and conducted a search, enquiries are ongoing."

Responding to the online reports of the incident, a spokesperson for Stone Parish Council has said: "Stone Fete 2019 was a fantastic event for thousands of local people.

"It was a real shame that this otherwise trouble-free event was affected by a couple of people not able to resolve their differences in an appropriate way.

"This is not at all what is expected at a family event, but should not overshadow what has been a great day out for the vast majority.

"The council will fully review the event, and in particular this incident, to put in place any necessary measures and we sincerely apologise to anyone that may have been affected by this."

Stone Fete 2019 was expected to attract thousands of party-goers with 90's dance music legends DJ Luck & MC Neat along with Phats & Small headlining the event.
