Eight people have been arrested following what police describe as an out-of-control party in Cromwell.

Officers were called to the Cairnmuir Crescent party after reports of a fight involving around 15 people.

They say the police officers were pelted with glass bottles thrown by a large group of youths.

Those arrested face a variety of charges, mostly related to disorderly behaviour.
