As onlookers cry ‘enough,’ a massive brawl breaks out outside McDonald’s.
On Thursday noon, a large brawl broke out near a McDonald’s in Liverpool City Centre, resulting in horrific sights of bystanders fighting to haul individuals to safety as the violence escalated.
A major street battle broke out outside a McDonald’s on a busy Liverpool high street this afternoon, with passersby battling to pull people out of the melee.
According to the ECHO, the horrifying brawl began at 1.45 p.m. on Lord Street near the McDonald’s.
Footage from the scene shows a large crowd of people joining in the altercation, as well as someone in a green coat struggling on the ground.
A man with a walking stick falls over on the floor before getting up at one point in the startling video.
The person with the green coat rises from his or her seat and flees the conflict.
Bystanders can be heard shouting and screaming as they attempt to break up the fight.
Someone falls to the ground near a blue bin in one scene, and two men approach him.
One of the men, clothed in a black coat and shorts, is heard yelling “f****** come on then” and pushing him.
As bystanders look on in disbelief, he and the other man in all black appear to try to grab the individual on the floor close to the blue garbage.
As she approached the gathering, a woman in a red coat can be heard saying “stop it, enough.”
Others yell “enough,” and one of the men is seen grabbing the individual on the ground by the shoulders.
As other people speak to them, the woman in red appears to say something to them, and the man then lets go of the person on the floor.
She can be heard shouting “grow up” at the end of the video as the person sitting on the floor gets up and walks away.
It’s unknown whether anyone was seriously hurt in the altercation, and no explanation for what happened or why has been supplied.
