A violent flurry of kicks, punches and blows are thrown among the group.
Some are grabbed in headlocks and thrown to the floor with the force of the blows.
It is believed the group had been at the spot for around half an hour before the brawl broke out.

The teens are in clear breach of social distancing measures, with current rules meaning only two people from separate households can meet if they keep two metres apart.

The spokesperson said the group had dispersed by the time authorities arrived but that police would looking into it further, LincolnshireLive reported.
