Two teenagers have been arrested after police broke up a seafront brawl last night.
Officers descended on the scene in Margate after reports of a disturbance at around 9.12pm.
Officers were seen separating a group of people on the steps on The Parade.
A police spokesperson said: "Police were called to The Parade in Margate following a report of a group of people causing a disturbance.
"Officers attended and a dispersal order was put in place to clear the area and deter further disturbance."
A 19-year-old woman from Margate was arrested on suspicion of a public order offence and being drunk and disorderly.
A 17-year-old boy, also from the area, was arrested on suspicion of assaulting an emergency worker.
They both remain in custody while enquiries into the disturbance continue.
This is the second incident of its involving a large group of people to occur in the area in just a few days.
Last week, officers were called to a beach fight in nearby Broadstairs.
A fight broke out between two groups of people on the beach in Viking Bay over the Bank Holiday weekend.
