A person was injured after being struck by a bottle in Richmond earlier this week.
Police are investigating the incident, which happened on Richmond Riverside on Tuesday evening, as an assault.
The riverside was extremely busy all day as people flocked to it to soak up the 24C weather.
As we reported, by Wednesday morning the usually picturesque river-facing banks were covered with litter which had been left behind by visitors.
A clip showing rowdy scenes on the riverside has been circulating widely online.
Richmond Police issued an appeal for witnesses about the incident.
The force said: “On March 30 at around 9pm on Richmond Riverside a victim was struck by a bottle suffering injury by an unknown suspect. Police are investigating this as an assault.
“The riverside was busy at the time, and it is thought there might be additional witnesses.
“If you were witness to this incident or have recorded footage of this assault we would ask that you contact us on 101 or on our website with reference to crime report 0702896/21.”
