Woman arrested after wedding guests clash at Elite Venue in Gravesend before fight at Premier Inn hotel car park
A bust-up between guests at a wedding party led to police being called out twice last night.
Trouble first flared at the Elite Venue, in Dunkirk Close, Gravesend - before later breaking out in the car park of a Premier Inn.
Kent Police were called to the scene at 11pm to reports of a clash between guests.

Nearby residents reported hearing shouting and screaming.
No arrests were made as the group had split apart and agreed to leave, a police spokesman said.
It is believed they are members of the traveling community.
A spokesman from the Elite Venue - which runs corporate events, conferences, weddings, functions and birthday parties - said the bar was closed at 10pm when trouble began.
They said: "When we saw things were getting out of hand, the bar was closed and the staff handled the situation well.
"We had our own security there and police were happy with how we dealt with it. We made them aware of what was happening. The incident was contained within the venue."
Two hours later, guests had returned to the Premier Inn hotel, in Hever Court Road, and police were once again called.

A 23-year-old woman from Wolverhampton was arrested on suspicion of a public order offence and remains in police custody.
A Premier Inn spokesman said: "We can confirm that an incident took place in the car park of our Gravesend hotel in the early hours of this morning.
"Our team dealt with the matter and worked with the local police to ensure the safety and security of our customers was not impacted.
"As the incident is now a police matter we cannot comment further."
