Why a heavy police presence descended on central Cambridge tonight

A heavy police presence has been spotted near Stourbridge Common after reports of a “fight”.

A number of officers and several police vehicles were seen responding to what appeared to be an incident on Stourbridge Common, near The Green Dragon earlier this evening (Wednesday August 26).

An eyewitness who was passing the scene said: “There is something happening on Stourbridge Common.

“Seven police officers just ran over the green bridge near The Green Dragon.

“There are at least four police cars outside The Green Dragon as well. At first one officer came down then about six others came running across, it was really weird.”

A spokesman for the police force has now confirmed they were called to reports of an incident but it did not need further action.

He said: “We were called to a report of something like a fight on the common but it in the end nothing happened. There were no arrests, nothing.

“We were called there to deal with an incident but when officers arrived it was nothing.”
