New footage has emerged of a mass brawl which took place on a busy street just north of West Croydon station.

The incident which happened on 3rd, September at around 7 pm was filmed on London Road. The footage shows a fight between multiple men wielding what appear to be baseball bats, knives and other weapons.

It is unclear whether anyone was seriously injured during the incident.

The video was originally circulated on the social media site Snapchat. It appears to show an initial clash between two men, both of whom are swinging baseball bats. One of the men appears to retreat before being chased by his opponent and a number of other men who are gathered around them on the pavement.

A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Police has issued a statement which said: “Police were called to London Road, Croydon, shortly after 7.02pm on Tuesday, September 3 to reports of 20 men fighting with weapons. Officers attended. The group had left the scene. One knife was recovered. There were no reported injuries. Enquiries continue.”
