Thugs attack each other with bottles of wine in supermarket mass brawl
This is the moment violent yobs hit each other over the head with bottles of wine as violence broke out at an Asda last night.
Terrified shoppers watched on as the group of men, some concealing their faces with hoods, attacked each other at the Isle of Dogs supermarket.
The thugs can be seen punching, kicking and headbutting each other in the shocking footage, with some even resorting to using wine bottles as weapons.
Shop signs and a card stand appear to be knocked over during the brawl, as both customers and the store's employees look on.
A woman can be heard pleading with one man "don't do it, no, no, no" as he lunges at another man with what looks like a bottle of wine.
Other members of the group can also be seen using wine bottles as weapons, with one being thrown - it can be heard smashing on the floor, off-camera.
Both the Metropolitan Police and London Ambulance Service attended the scene and confirmed one man was treated for non-life threatening injuries sustained in the violence.
