A gang "armed with weapons" have attacked a number of people at a Surrey social club.

Police were called to the Forman Institute in Blindley Heath just after 7.30pm on Wednesday (November 7) night.

13 men attacked their victims in an out-building at the back of the club before heading north on the A22, police say.

South East Coast Ambulance Service has confirmed six men were injured and all were taken to hospital.

Two remain in a serious but stable condition.

No arrests have been made at this stage.

Detective Chief Inspector Chris Friday, who is leading the investigation, said:

“We are in the early stages of our investigation and we are still trying to piece together what has exactly happened. What we do know is that this is an extremely serious incident and we are doing all we can to find those responsible.

“The investigation is well underway and we have officers out in the local area conducting reassurance patrols.

“We understand that this is a concerning incident for local residents but we do not believe there to be a wider threat the public and it is extremely rare for an incident of this nature to occur.

“If you saw something, no matter how small, then please pick up the phone as it could assist our investigation.”

Anyone who witnessed the incident, or has information about those involved, is asked to call Surrey Police on 101.
