Nobody suffered serious injuries, the spokesman said.

A 24-year-old Leicester man, a 50-year-old Corby man, a 59-year-old Corby man and a 41-year-old Corby woman have all been arrested.

Yesterday one onlooker told the Northants Telegraph: “There were lots of people running.

”The police came and put one man in the back of their car and took him away very quickly.

”Another was sat on the pavement saying he couldn’t get up then he was put in the back of the ambulance in handcuffs.

”He seemed to have something tied around his leg.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101.
