A boozy post GCSEs beach party of 2,000 drunken schoolkids turned ugly when some of the teenage louts lobbed glass bottles at police officers.

Laughing gas, cannabis and a mammoth amount of alcohol – some of which had reportedly been spiked  – were seized on the beach at Chalkwell, Essex, last night.  

A number of the underage 16-year-olds drank so much that they required medical attention.

Southend Police officers scrambled to the beach to squash the carnage when some of the children started raining down bottles on them.

They sent the schoolkids, who came from five local schools, back home and today gave a public dressing down to both the students and their parents.    

The force said on Facebook said: ‘There were in the region of 1,500 to 2,000 kids down near the beach in Chalkwell, Essex and around 100 to 150 in Thorpe Bay.

‘Whilst its clearly an exciting time for the kids finishing school exams and taking their next step in life, it’s not really acceptable to go and get smashed on the beach.

‘It’s not acceptable to throw bottles at Police Officers and PCSOs, it’s not acceptable to cause disruption to other people, and it’s not acceptable to spike other people’s drinks.

‘We confiscated a lot of alcohol from the kids, many of those kids when told it was going asked us if their parents could come and collect it as they bought it for them.

Southend Police tweeted a picture of the confiscated knife on Twitter and hit out at the boozy party for draining their resources

‘Southend CPT would just like to remind parents that it’s an offence to purchase alcohol for someone under the age of 18 years.

‘There were many kids around that as the evening went on became so drunk or suffered medical problems through drink or drugs that we had to call the ambulance service on several occasions and we all know how busy they are.

‘We also had to make some arrests for kids who were drunk and disorderly or causing public order issues, these kids were lucky to have been taken home and not to the cells.’

All alcohol taken from the children has been destroyed

The closest high school, St Bernad’s have been reached for comment.
