Shocking footage shows the moment a violent brawl breaks out between two groups at a London rooftop bar as the DJ takes cover behind his decks.

The incident, which saw revellers battle it out six floors above the central London streets, took place at Madison roof top bar in the financial district of St Paul’s last night.

A video filmed from the restaurant level of the venue shows a number of men throwing punches and brandishing bottles while security guards attempt to intervene. 

Eight were arrested and a number of people were injured following the fight in which several punches were landed and chairs, tables, and flower pots appear to have been thrown.
