‘It makes us feel unsafe’
HORRIFIC footage of the fight which took place in Uxbridge t own centre between about 70 youths has been shared on social media.
The violence led to one shop locking its doors in response to a young person running away to escape a larger group, Metropolitan Police confirmed.
A video, which appears to have been filmed on Snapchat, shows countless young people pushing and shoving before one man falls to the ground.
Youths are captured on camera appearing to kick the unidentified man while he is on the ground, before he escapes the mass brawl and leans against a shop window, appearing to gasp for air as others surround him to try and protect him from further attack.
Loud screams and shrieks can be heard throughout the clip.
The footage has been described as “frightening” and makes locals feel “unsafe,” one anonymous resi- dent told getwestlondon.
Reacting to the shocking video, an anonymous resident told getwestlondon: “Utter madness.
“I feel for the people shopping who see this.
“I saw the video and was shocked at the amount of people causing chaos and behaving in a disgusting manner.
“It’s frightening for people shopping to witness that - it makes you feel unsafe.”
