It said the order came into effect at 10:47 BST on Wednesday and it means officers have the power to stop and search people, regardless of whether they have reasonable grounds to or not.

Police said the confrontation happened on a Redway foot and cycle path and it was believed the victims and the offenders were known to each other.

Insp Nick Herceg said: "This incident happened early in the evening and involved a number of young people with weapons.

"Two teenagers have suffered injuries, but thankfully these are not life-threatening, although clearly this is a very serious incident."
