Shocking video shows mass brawl erupt in rooftop bar as revellers hurl tables and chairs and DJ cowers behind decks

SHOCKING footage shows the moment a mass brawl erupted at a rooftop bar in London last night with angry thugs throwing tables and chairs at each other.

The fight broke out at the Madison Rooftop Bar near St Paul's Cathedral in the capital's financial district resulting in a number of injuries, police said.

In the clip, the venue's DJ can be seen cowering behind his booth as the lads hurl chairs at each other.

Initially, several punches are thrown between a few of the men before others join in.

The smaller group of partygoers retreat behind the DJ's station but continue to taunt the larger group of drinkers who hurl everything they can get their hands on.

One bouncer is seen struggling to control the young men as screams from female onlookers can be heard.

City of London Police say eight people were arrested after the chaos which happened a week after the government eased lockdown restrictions to allow the public back into bars and pubs.

ROOFTOP RUMBLE

A statement read: “Our officers were called to a large & violent fight at the Madison rooftop bar in the City last night, in which a number of people were injured.

“We made 8 arrests & our investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information should call 020 7601 2998, quoting 8878.”

This comes after a video emerged showing a mass brawl in a beer garden on its first day of reopening after lockdown.

The fight, which took place on July 6, saw drinkers wrestle on the ground outside a pub named online as The White Elephant in Glasgow.

Social distancing didn't appear to last long for some pub-goers as a group were filmed exchanging blows.

A man in a pink hoodie is then seen being pinned to the ground by another man in green.

He uses his hand to try and shove his face into the dirt as people struggle to pull him off.

An older man wearing a face mask also tries to extricate himself and is given a hand out of the brawl by a bystander.

Angry shouting can be heard as people try to separate the fight and eventually the man in green is hauled off his victim.
