Police have arrested six men following riots in Ealing after a gig last night (December 22).
It is thought around 2,000 people tried to gain entry to a concert , named as Somalian event "Wild n Out", but many failed because of the venue's capacity of 500.
Metropolitan Police decided to shut down the event, with the help of Ealing Council, after 11pm but disorder broke out in nearby Longfield Avenue.
The incident left two police officers with minor injuries, two police dogs injured and one man hospitalised.
Officers, who said missiles were thrown at them, confirmed on Friday (December 23) that they have arrested six men, aged between, 19 and 23, on suspicion of public order offences.
They remain in custody at west London police stations.
Deputy borough commander of Ealing, detective superintendent Robert Mahoney, said: "A large number of people tried to gain entry to a pre-planned event being held at Ealing Town Hall last night.
"They were stopped from entering because of safety concerns. This resulted in some of the group engaging in disorder.
"A swift and proportionate police response soon brought the situation under control and six men are currently in custody.
"I want to reassure the residents of Ealing that this was an isolated incident which has been effectively dealt with."
Roads were reopened in the area around 2am this morning (Friday December 23).
Ealing Council is launching a review into the event and said it was booked by charity Mother and Child Welfare Organisation (MACWO).
It is the first time the charity had booked an event with the council, who say a review is now under way into the gig.
MACWO has been approached for comment.
