Officers were called out just before midnight to reports of “about 50 youths arguing and a smaller number fighting” in Roma Road, Stanground.

Many of the party-goers fled when officers arrived, while one was found with minor injuries but did not require hospital treatment, according to a Cambridgeshire police spokesman.

The knife was found hidden behind the garden shed.
