A Woodford Green woman has been arrested in connection with an alleged "disturbance" at a Southend theme park.

The 21-year-old has been bailed until later this month after being arrested on suspicion of a public order offence.

Essex Police said a "disturbance" broke out at Adventure Island on bank holiday Monday (August 30) just after 5.45pm.

Officers were called to reports that a woman in her 20s had sustained injuries to her head and torso, which required hospital treatment.

Police arrived within three minutes and arrested two men, both 18, and a 16-year-old boy, all from London, on suspicion of violent disorder.

They have also been bailed until later in September.

A woman was arrested later, the force added.
