Police descend on soft play after fight between two mums

Police were called to a soft play in Somerset after a fight broke out between two parents. Witnesses said they heard one mum tell the other that they needed to control their kid.

Apparently, an older child kept barging into a toddler. Tensions reportedly rose between the two women at Bridge pub’s Wacky Warehouse soft play in Yatton and officers were eventually called.

Avon and Somerset Police confirmed they attended an incident at the venue shortly after 2.45pm on Thursday, October 26. No arrests were made after both parents decided not to press charges.

A witness said: “There was a massive argument and the police had to be called after a mother asked a woman to control her child.

"She had quite a young toddler and this older child kept barging them over. When she asked the child’s mother to control her child all hell let loose. The police had to be called and the soft play was shut. It was horrible to see - especially in front of loads of young children.”

A police spokesperson said: “We were called to The Bridge Inn in Yatton shortly after 2.45pm on Thursday 26 October to a report of a confrontation between two women.

“CCTV enquiries were carried out and it was agreed, in consultation with both parties, not to progress the incident.”

Wacky Warehouse declined to comment on the incident.
