Shocking footage shows the moment a mass brawl erupted outside a seafront pub over the Easter weekend.
The fight appeared to start as a one-on-one tussle outside the Master Mariner Wetherspoon’s pub in New Brighton on Friday night.
But as a youth wearing a red top gets on top of his opponent and begins throwing punches, others pile in to stop him.
The crowd gathered for the fight outside the Master Mariner Wetherspoon’s pub in New Brighton at 8pm on Friday
A young woman kicks him in the bottom during the scrap at around 8pm, but then a thug wearing a blue cap and t-shirt runs over and lands a series of brutal punches.
His first shot hits the fighter in the kidneys, with two follow up undercuts connecting with the top of his head.
This causes the youngster to roll off his original challenger and face down the new threat.

He backs off and it becomes clear he is outnumbered by five to two, with the gang forming a line in front of him.
The youth takes another swing for his first rival but is again set upon by the cap-wearing thug.

The unnamed man takes a further two swift kicks to the stomach and reels over, crumpling on the road.
The thug attempts to boot the youth again as he lies on the ground.
But in a hilarious misjudgement, he gets his leg court in his victim body and tumbles backwards to the floor.
By now, the crowd surrounding the fight has swelled to around 25, with bouncers from the pub watching on.
The clip appeared to be recorded from the terrace of the pub and many punters had left their seats to get a better view of the fight over the fence.
The cameraman, who wished to remain anonymous, said: ‘The police attended within a few minutes after the video ended.’
Merseyside Police and Wetherspoon were approached for comment.
