Knives and scissors were pulled out during a street brawl in Hastings today.

A group of young people began fighting by the inner city clock tower just after midday. No-one was hurt despite knives and scissors being presented, Senior Sergeant Greg Brown said.

Two young men and two adult men were arrested. They are facing a number of charges including disorderly behaviour, fighting, resisting arrest and possessing an offensive weapon.

There was already a warrant out for one of the people arrested.

The fight erupted after threats were made against one of those involved last night, Mr Brown said.

"Police have a zero tolerance approach to this sort of behaviour and we urge anyone who thinks they can present or use these weapons to think again,'' Mr Brown said.

''There are serious consequences for this type of behaviour."
