Three people have been taken to hospital after they were run over by a car during a street fight in Basildon.

The incident happened at the Festival Leisure Park retail centre, in Festival Way, just after 5am on Saturday morning (February 11).

It's believed that two groups of people got into an altercation, before the suspects got in a silver Vauxhall Antara and drove at the victims.

Three men, all in their early 20s, are currently in hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

A 16-year-old boy and a 50-year-old man, both from South Ockendon, have been arrested on suspicion of attempted murder.

Detectives have asked for any witnesses to contact Basildon CID on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously.
