Shocking footage shows three women fighting in an Asda supermarket
A man had to step in and screamed “get off her” in the cereal aisle

Seconds later a man joins in the brawl and launches a series of kicks inside the Asda supermarket in Brierley Hill near Dudley.

Security staff had to rush in and break up to fight and the four people involved were ordered to leave the store.

It comes as the UK coronavirus death toll hit 4,353, with more than 41,000 confirmed cases.

A stunned eyewitness said the scrap started following a garden dispute between neighbours living in the town.

They told Birmingham Live: “One of them said, ‘it’s my neighbour she grabbed me by the neck. My son has learning difficulties we can’t go out in our garden’.


“They were fighting for a good 20 seconds before I started recording. The bloke who intervened was nothing to do with them, he just snapped and starts kicking.

“It kicked-off in the cereal aisle so the social distancing went out the window while everyone started poking their heads in.”

An Asda spokesman confirmed those involved were told to leave the store following the incident on Tuesday.

He said: “We do not tolerate violence towards our customers or colleagues in our stores.

“We ask our customers to be respectful of each other and our colleagues and to follow the social distancing measures we have put in place to help keep everyone safe.”

It comes after thousands of Brits ignored the strict lockdown rules yesterday to sunbathe during a mini heatwave.

Police in the capital were also forced to break up an 18th birthday attended by 25 guests who flouted the social distancing guidelines set out by the government.

Brockwell Park will shut after 3,000 people descended on the green space -despite the UK’s chief nurse begging Brits to stay at home in memory of two hero nurses who lost their lives fighting coronavirus.

And police in Newham, East London, busted a birthday party ordering some 25 guests to go home.

Cops said: “This family thought law relating to social distancing shouldn’t apply to 18th birthday parties. 25 guests moved on.”

In Clapham Common, police were seen reminding groups of sunbathing Brits of their social distancing responsibilities.

Surrey Road Police also shared a shocking video of Richmond Bridge in West London packed with people out walking along the Thames.


In a tweet, they urged Brits to “PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE stay at home.”

Police were also out in force in Brighton in case Brits descend on the seaside town to enjoy the mini heatwave.

Cops have warned anyone who refuses to follow the UK’s lockdown guidelines this weekend will be arrested.

Under the drastic measures, Brits are expected to stay indoors and only go outside for essential shopping trips, medical reasons, one stint of daily exercise and to work from home if possible.

The CPS also said they would prosecute people who coughed on or at emergency service staff during the crisis.
