Police said they were called to Fleeters Hill in Hingham on Friday afternoon following a dispute between three groups of men.

A police spokesman said a “chainsaw or hedge cutter” was used in the fight, along with spades.

Five men, two aged in their 40s, one in his 30s, one in his 20s and another in his late teens, were arrested on suspicion of affray.

They have all been released pending further investigation.

Police said one man suffered a cut, but did not say where or how large it was.

The spokesman said: “It does appear that spades and a chainsaw or hedge cutter were used.

“But it does not appear that anyone was seriously hurt.”

Officers were called to the scene shortly after 3.30pm on September 29.

Anyone with information call Norfolk Police on 101.
