Police were called to a 'serious incident' in the Hollinshead Street and Union Street area of Chorley.

"Many of these youths and parents had already been educated with regards to breaching the rules but unfortunately the education wasn't enough and the youths were still out in large groups," a spokesman for Lancashire Police said.

Officers are now appealing for witnesses and are also asking anyone with CCTV footage to come forward.
