Three arrests after mass water fight in London’s Hyde Park ‘got out of control’


A mass water fight in one of London’s biggest parks led to three people being arrested and another ending up injured in hospital, police said

More than 1500 people were said to have taken part in the event in Hyde Park on Friday afternoon.
Such was the size of the fight, believed to have been organised on social networking sites, that it saw the temporary closure of London’s main shopping district and the usually busy Oxford Street.

High temperatures throughout on Friday afternoon swelled numbers and what began as good-natured fun soon descended into a police incident.
Police only managed to control the crowd after about eight hours when participents were finally dispersed.
Scotland Yard said that two male participants were arrested for public order offences, while a third detained on suspicion of causing grevious bodily harm.
Another revellers was taken to hospital with non-life threatening facial injuries.
The water fight appears to have been orgainsed through social networking websites.
One posting advertising the event said: ”As soon as the clock strikes 1pm, let battle commence – get as many other people wet without getting wet yourself! Last one with a dry T-shirt wins!!!”
Scotland Yard was forced to issue a Section 60 order allowing officers to search revellers in the area.

Man this is like our park and we totals missed out =/
And lol at the police, STOP LEMME SEE IF YOU HAVE ANY WATER ON YOU…. ;p
