Fight breaks out at Nelson school


Police visited a top Nelson high school after reports of a fight breaking out among a group of girls on the school grounds on Monday.

Nelson police Senior Sergeant Steve Savage said the incident at Nelson College for Girls was reported to police yesterday.

Steve says he has limited information about what happened as police went to the school to interview those involved yesterday, however, the fight happened around midday Monday.

“It’s still being dealt with. The college obviously deal with as much as they can before we get there. I don’t yet know how serious it was, but it was a group [of people].”

Because of the ages of those involved – under 17 – Nelson’s youth aid team were dealing with the situation, he said.
