BLOEMENDAAL - Nine people were arrested late on Sunday night after fighting broke out on the beach at Bloemendaal, west of Amsterdam.

The trouble started at a beach venue where around 1,000 people were partying. The police were called around midnight after a man was hurt in a scuffle. The situation then escalated.

The police say those detained are between 16 and 22 and come from Amsterdam and Lelystad. The reason for the dispute remains unknown.
