INVESTIGATIONS continue into a 30 person brawl at a nightclub in Southend.

Four police officers sustained a variety of injuries including a human bite and the effects of having their hair pulled when they tried to break up the fight at Talk on Lucy Road, Southend, just before 2am on Sunday May 18.

They all required medical treatment, as did two members of the club’s door staff who were also injured.

Seven people have been bailed by police following the fight.

Six men, aged between 18 and 40, and a 27-year-old woman, who all live in the East Ham area of east London, are currently on police bail until Monday, July 14 pending further enquiries.
