The disturbance in the village hall car park in Rectory Road took place just before 6pm on Saturday, after the village regatta.

One officer injured after he was kicked in the shin while a second suffered hand injuries.

A local boy, 16, also suffered a broken wrist during the incident.

Three people were arrested at the scene.

Det Sgt Nick Eliot, of Colchester CID, said: “A large number of young people had gathered in the field and were consuming alcohol. Another incident took place just before where some young men were seen fighting near the basketball court. One of them received a broken wrist.

“We believe people may have filmed the incident on their mobile phones or taken photos. I would urge anyone that does have any footage to get in touch with officers at Colchester CID.

“We are carrying out house to house enquiries in the local area.”

Ch Insp Richard Phillibrown, district commander for Colchester, added: “This is a one off incident and I would urge local residents not to be concerned. We will be working with the organisers of the event to put some measures in place to try and reduce the risk of this happening in the future.”

Anybody with any footage of the incident or with information should contact Colchester CID on 101, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
