A large number of the youths then gathered on the street outside the home and began fighting, creating a disturbance and yelling abuse at police

A 16-year-old boy was arrested for disorderly behaviour.

Police took 15 juveniles into care and handed them over to responsible adults.

The organiser allegedly charged a fee to enter the party, and police inquiries are continuing on whether he will face charges.
