At 2pm on Friday a man sustained minor injuries during a collision between a silver VW Golf and a motorbike on Yarnfield Lane near Stone.

At 8pm the same day Staffordshire Police officers attended nearby Greenside, following reports of disorder involving a group of men with weapons.

No one was reported injured but officers have since arrested six people in connection with both incidents, which are believed to be connected.
