Punch up foiled by CCTV operators

Published Friday, 13 March 2015

Two men were arrested after they were spotted fighting on CCTV and police alerted.

Enfield Council’s CCTV operator spotted the punch up in Green Lanes, Palmers Green, at 5.20pm on Tuesday 3 March and called the police while bystanders pulled the pair apart.

The pair were arrested and one treated for a bleeding eye.

Enfield Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment and Community Safety, Cllr Chris Bond, said: “The prompt and professional actions of our CCTV operators, the community spirit of members of the public and the police’s quick response all played a major part in preventing this incident escalating, and may well have prevented someone being seriously injured.”
