Huge Asda brawl sees shoppers ‘use bottles as weapons’ while others flee

Disturbing footage shows a group of men fighting in Asda – with police called to break up the violent clashes.

The video, uploaded by the Twitter account @crimeLdn, shows a frenzied brawl at East Ferry Road store on the Isle of Dogs at 10.35 pm on Thursday (February 18).

In the video, bottles loudly smash and a man yells "stop" while other people involved in the fight shout angrily.

The men kick, punch, swing bottles and throw each other to the ground, knocking over displays in the supermarket and creating scenes of chaos.
