Sword and claw hammer thought to be carried by gang

Police are appealing for witnesses in St Leonards who may have seen a gang, who were carrying weapons, chase three men.

It is thought the gang were carrying a sword and a claw hammer, but the weapons were not used on anyone.

A 22-year-old man and a 23-year-old man, both from St Leonards, were questioned on suspicion of public order offences before being released on bail until 23 September.

PC Ian Rise, from Hastings Response Investigation Team, said: "We believe that an argument happened, causing all six men to run into the street."
