Emergency services have attended an out-of-hand party involving dozens of teenagers in Wellow tonight (Friday).
A disturbance is understood to have occurred resulting in multiple Police units, a Co-Responder from the Isle of Wight Fire & Rescue Service, an Ambulance Officer and Ambulance crews all being mobilised to the scene in the quiet village near Shalfleet.
Island Echo is told that at least 2 teenagers have been arrested and that 1 teen is in hospital with small cuts to the head.
Southern Vectis tweeted earlier to say the incident was blocking the carriageway and as a result Route 7 buses were being diverted.
Owing to police activity blocking the road in Wellow route 7, 23:10 Newbridge to Totland has been delayed and is operating 30 minutes late. Unfortunately, this is a situation beyond our control.
Earlier in the evening the Isle of Wight Ambulance Service were called to a cardiac arrest in nearby Thorley.
UPDATE SATURDAY @ 11:05 – 4 teenagers have been arrested and another hospitalised following last night’s incident. Read more at https://www.islandecho.co.uk/emergency-services-attend-wellow-incident/.
