Up to 100 schoolchildren armed with "knives and bats" were involved in a horrific brawl in south-east London, it has emerged.

Metropolitan Police said officers were called to "a large fight" between youngsters at around 5.40pm on Monday in Northumberland Heath in Bexley, South-East London. 

Around 100 youths were involved, according to reports on social media, with some wearing school uniform, near the Duchess of Kent pub.

Jeanne Asquith wrote on Facebook: "Never seen anything like it and I've lived here eight years ... I just hope the schools deal with those involved. Most were wearing school uniform!"

Another witness told the Evening Standard “It was just scary. It was school kids, basically, all in their uniforms, with hoods up and lots with their faces covered up. Some had knives and bats and who knows what."

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "Officers from the borough and the Met's Territorial Support Group were called to the scene.

"Two individuals suffered non-life threatening injuries," she revealed. "They were taken to a south London hospital by London Ambulance Service to be treated for their injuries.

"Officers are still in the area to provide reassurance. Around six individuals were arrested and are in custody at south London police stations."
