Police said a man was injured after being hit on the head with a ‘blunt implement’ during a confrontation between the occupants of an Audi A4 and a Ford Transit van.
Two men were arrested on suspicion of assault and officers want people to come forward with information. Police say everyone involved was ‘known to each other’.
A video of the brawl – captured by an onlooker on a phone – shows a woman in a light green dress grappling with a woman wearing a pink floral gown and headscarf.

As several members of the public struggle to pull them apart a third woman in a light pink blouse is seen recoiling in pain, clutching her face.
Stunned, she can only manage a few steps before falling to the ground and curling up into a ball on the kerb.
Police officers then shout ‘get back’ as they get between the warring women and restore order.
