A police officer was stabbed when a "spontaneous water fight" on the hottest day of the year so far turned violent, the Met has said.
Bottles and other items were thrown at officers in London's Hyde Park after the "increasingly large crowd became hostile to police" at about 20:40 BST.
Another officer was hit with a bottle, Scotland Yard said, while two members of the public suffered stab wounds.
All four injured people are being treated in hospital, police said.
The gathering had been attended by police since 15:00. No arrests have been made.
Anyone with information has been urged to contact police or Crimestoppers.
