Police have taped off Bronte House off Matthias Road, which is the border of Islington and Hackney.

Cops said they were called at 7.25am to reports of a fight and arrived to find blood and broken glass in the street, next to a basketball court.

“Officers and London Ambulance Service attended the scene and found a man, believed aged in his 20s, suffering a head injury,” said a spokesman.

“It was alleged he had been hit on the head with a bottle during the fight.”

The victim was taken to an east London hospital. His injuries are not life-threatening.

A smashed Kopparberg bottle was visible at the scene when the Gazette arrived. Moments later it was driven over by an Islington Council van.

Two men have been arrested on suspicion of affray.
