A SHOCKING video shows vile thugs attempting to lash each other with wooden planks and a metal pole outside of a hardware store.
 
A scrap broke out between several men outside Jewson’s Manchester Central store on Beckford Street in Newton Heath, Manchester, on Tuesday.

The incident lasted several minutes in which roughly eight men brutally attacked each other, with one man needing to be taken to hospital. 

 

The video shows a group of men in workie clothing advancing towards four other men wearing high visibility jackets. 
 
The men in work clothes are seen smashing the windscreen of a white transit van with long square wooden planks. 
 
The two sides attempt to batter each other with the huge poles, of which one seems to be 10 feet long.

One man has a stream of blood pouring down his face as the workies advance, with another man shouting “let’s f**king have it”. 
 
Other cars, believed to be owned by people who had nothing to do with the chaos, get hit by the aggressive thugs as they continue to attack.
