Shocking footage shows “rival football fans” throwing chairs at each other in brawl

DRAMATIC footage shows a clash allegedly between football rivals as they brawl in the street and throw chairs.

The altercation is said to have been between 20 Leeds United and Huddersfield Town fans, who were filmed fighting in Mirfield, West Yorkshire.

Police were called to the scene in the early hours of Saturday morning after the men began throwing chairs at each other.

As the clip begins, the men are seen confronting each other in the street as security staff from a nearby bar try to intervene.

At one point, one yob in a black hoodie runs over and pushes another man to the ground before trying to kick several other people.

The crowd continues to square up to each other, before the man in the hoodie storms over to another and punches him hard in the face.

The man is sent sprawling to the floor and falls backwards onto the road.
