Witness appeal - public affray in Wigmores, Telford

Telford locals are being asked to come forward with any information about a public disorder on the Woodside housing estate in Wigmores, which took place on the night of Friday 1 December.

At about 9.20pm, police received reports of a disturbance on the main path going through the estate, possibly involving up to 20 people.

Following the incident, a teenaged girl has been taken to hospital with serious head injuries. One 33-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of affray, and remains in police custody.

Detective Inspector Billy Scott said: "We believe that those involved in the incident are all known to each other. However, we're keen to reassure local residents that we're taking the matter very seriously, and we'll be increasing police patrols in the area.

"It's really important that anyone who was around the Woodside Estate at the time of the disturbance comes forward with information that will help our investigation. It occurred on a public street at a time of night when many locals will have been walking or driving past - even the smallest piece of information could be vital."
