SEVEN teenagers were assaulted after New year celebrations turned into a violent street brawl.

Seven boys and two teenage girls were attacked in the fracas which broke out at a party on Saxon Crossway in Winsford in the early hours of January 1.

Three teenage boys, aged 15, 16 and 17. were arrested.

Some of the injured youngsters are understood to have been stabbed and struck with bottles in the disturbance and were treated in hospital for their injuries.

One teenage boy is believed to have suffered a fractured eye socket and had teeth knocked out.

One shocked dad who lives on Saxon Crossway, said: "It was frightening, absolute pandemonium. Everyone was woken up.

"I saw six police cars and a couple of ambulances.

"There were multiple acts of random violence and trouble through the estate."

He said one teenage girl had her head split open and a teenage boy was severely beaten by a mob of youths.

The man, who drove along the street to pick up his own son from another party, added: "One lad who was about 18 had a severe beating. He had a smashed eye socket and hardly any teeth left. A gang of around 30 lads were smashing bottles on him.

"It was like something you'd see in a city not a little rural town like this. People were scared."

Cheshire Police confirmed they had been called to reports of an altercation between a group of people on Saxon Crossway .

A police spokesman said: "Seven teenage boys and two teenage girls had been assaulted and police are establishing the cause of the injuries, some of which required hospital treatment.

"A 15-year-old boy from Coventry was arrested along with a 16-year-old boy from Winsford and a 17-year-old from Rugby.
