One mother who witnessed the incident said her nine-year-old daughter was pushed by one of the teens and that she had to push her own son out of the way.

She wrote on Facebook: "Today at Bluewater a fight broke out between a group of teenage boys just outside Wagamamas.

"In the brawl my nine-year-old daughter was pushed by one of the teens whilst I had to shove my son out the way before another boy was floored next to him.

.

"I’m absolutely disgusted with the danger these stupid teenage boys caused to both themselves and others around.

"One of the boys had a glass bottle. This is a serious matter with intentions to permanently hurt someone.

"Speaking to nearby restaurant staff apparently this is a regular weekend occurrence.

"I’m appalled with what was meant to be a nice family day out for us, ended with my daughter in tears and my five-year-old son frightened.

The woman continued, claiming that only one of the boys were caught and that she was "serious appalled".

Spokesman for Bluewater Jo Reason said: "We are aware of an incident which took place earlier today. As this is a police matter all enquiries should be directed to Kent Police."

Police have been contacted for further information.
