Wednesday, 25th May 2022, 12:38 pm

After a number of people were allegedly assaulted at Sals Car Sales in Dronfield Road, two cars – a black Audi Q5 and a white VW Tiguan – left the site and drove along Dronfield Road towards Marsh Lane.

The two then drove down Ashmore Avenue – where it is believed a collision occurred between the two cars – and then a further fight took place in the street between a group of men from both cars.

Several incidents took place around Eckington on Friday morning.

The men got back into the cars and drove a short distance to Ravencar Road, close to Eckington School, where a further disturbance took place.

Derbyshire Police had arrested four men last week, but only one remains in custody – with three being released on police bail.

Their enquiries into the disturbances are ongoing, and detectives remain keen to speak to anyone with any information – in particular anyone with mobile phone, dashcam or CCTV footage that captured any of the incidents.
