Inside The Force: Watch chaotic fight on estate as woman stabbed in neck on latest episode

Officers attend a chaotic neighborhood fight on an estate in the the latest episode of Inside The Force.

Every month Cleveland Police deals with over a 120 neighbourhood fights. Seasoned PC Adam Woodland attends the latest in episode 7 of the Channel 5 series, a big fight on an estate on one of the hottest days of the year.

The officer says: "These calls that come into us on the big housing estates that we go to, we tend to go in numbers because they all come out… it is like a warzone." On arrival several different incidents are kicking off.

One woman is suspected of hitting her daughter, so is arrested for common assault and taken to custody. At the same time across the street, a bloodied man is stumbling in the road having allegedly been hit by a car and turns on the police.

Across town, PCs Dawn Rogers and Kern Smiles head out to a dispute where car windows have been put through and threats to torch a house have been made. As the suspect is arrested at the scene and being taken away to custody he shouts at his neighbours “You big dirty grassers”.
