A mass brawl involving 70 youths throwing punches, landing kicks and stamping on heads careered through a town centre last night.
Police have been forced to set up a ‘dispersal zone’ in the centre of Uxbridge, west London, because of the chaos at around 5.30pm last night.
It means that anyone who refuses to leave the area – or who returns after being moved on – can be arrested.
The tactic is being used across the capital to stem the tide of youth violence in some areas.
Shocking footage of the fight emerged online this morning with punches and kicks thrown to a soundtrack of screams.
