SHOCKING video shows a mass brawl taking place outside a pub the first day that beer gardens opened in Scotland.
The fight, which took place yesterday, saw revelers wrestling with each other on the ground outside a pub named online as The White Elephant in Glasgow.
As the clip begins, a group of men and women are seen tussling on the floor.
A woman manages to get up and walks away shouting about having her hair pulled.
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.
Eventually the man in green is hauled off his victim.
As the clip ends, the two have been pulled apart and the man wearing a face mask is seen being held back from going for more.
The mayhem unfolded on the first day lockdown restrictions were eased to enable Scots to visit beer gardens for the first time in months.
The video was shared extensively on social media, where it has since been viewed thousands of times.
The group’s actions have drawn strong condemnation from those who saw the clip.

“Then you see this s*** happening by a bunch of brainless idiots. Unbelievable. On a Monday on day 1. Get a grip ffs.”
