The Blackheath Bank Holiday Funfair is set to reopen today following early closure yesterday due to disorder in the area.

The funfair closed earlier than planned at around 6pm on Tuesday due to "unforeseen circustances" - according to its Facebook page.

At around 11pm, the organisers of the funfair gave a further update to say it would resume "normal operations" from 1pm on Wednesday as per advice from the council and police.

Organisers added that Tuesday's incidents were "confirmed by police" to have not been instigated by the presence of the fair - and that much of the disturbance took place away from the fairground.

Organiser Joe Noyce said: "I'd like to thank the police for their swift action in dealing with the large group of youths seeking to cause disruption and unrest in this area of Blackheath Common.

"As a family business ourselves, we want to ensure families coming to our fair feels safe, so we have enlisted additional onsite security, and are grateful by police reassurances of additional patrols in the local area. "

Additional safety measures will be in place when the fair reopens - including extra security, enhanced safety checks and teenagers will need to be with an adult to gain entry.

Officers were called to antisocial behaviour reports and a number of assaults in Greenwich Park at around 4.20pm.

A cordon was put in place to help disperse large crowds and a number of police resources were sent to the scene.

A stabbing had also been reported but after a search of the area no victim was found.

Police have now confirmed they are content that no stabbing took place.

Seven people were arrested on suspicion of possession of an offensive weapon and "related offences".

By around 6.15pm the area had been cleared.

A section 60 order was in place in the area until 7am today - allowing police to stop and search anyone in the area.
