A bingo bust-up between two warring pensioners had to be calmed by police for the second time this year after a row at a seafront club.
Officers were called to deal with the elderly pair – aged 90 and 92 - after an ongoing feud at Herne Bay's Connaught Bingo Club boiled over and reportedly ended with a punch being thrown.
A patrol car was sent to the Central Parade venue to investigate the reports, when counter allegations of harassment were made.
The visit on June 26 – which resulted in no arrests – follows a previous call to the rival pair in February.
The rows are believed to have been sparked by a dispute over each woman winning on fruit machines the other had put money in.
A police spokesman said: "Kent Police has investigated an allegation of harassment following an ongoing feud between two elderly women who attend the Connaught Bingo Club.
"Both parties have been spoken to, and we will not be taking the matter any further."
It is thought both women were hit with a suspension by the club and warned to stay away from each other.
But a club spokesman said: "This is a private matter between our members. It's a private members club so we have no comment to make."
