TWO men from Chelmsford were involved in a fight outside a secondary school.

Police were called shortly after 3.30pm last Friday to reports of a brawl at William de Ferrers school in Trinity Square, South Woodham Ferrers.

It is believed the parents came to blows after a row between their daughters.

An Essex Police spokesman said: “It is believed the fight was between two parents.

“A 41-year-old man from Chelmsford was punched in the face outside William De Ferrers School at 3.30pm.

“The victim sustained minor facial injuries, but declined any medical treatment.

“The other man, a 37-year-old from Chelmsford, has been spoken to by officers and the investigation continues.

“It is believed that the argument began following ongoing interactions between the men’s daughters.”
