Arrests after out of control Wellington party

10:13 am on 17 April 2016

At least four people have been arrested after an out of control party spilled onto the streets of central Wellington.

Police said they received reports of more than 30 people fighting on the streets around Kingges Ave, throwing bottles, and setting off fireworks just after 10pm yesterday.

They said it took 12 staff around 30 minutes to rein in the crowd of young people and stop them returning to the party.

They could not confirm whether the four people who were arrested were charged.
