– Police are investigating a new Facebook page inviting teens to fight each other in a Ringwood backyard.
The page was established on Saturday and has already attracted 1070 “likes”.
It claims to offer people the chance to earn money through the backyard fights. Fighters looking challengers are listed as aged between 15 and 20.
