‘This is the shocking moment a woman started swinging punches at customers and shop workers after a brawl broke out in a supermarket over social distancing rules.
Dramatic video captured the violence erupting inside the Birmingham store after the woman apparently mistook one customer for a member of staff. She was said to have become angry at the man failing to follow social distancing measures at the Medina Superstore in the Lozells area of the city.
In the video, uploaded to the website Birmz Is Grime, the woman can be heard asking the store owner: “Do you own this shop? Why do you have a worker like that?”
She then starts swinging at several men who quickly become involved in the unsavoury scuffle as another person starts shouting “he is a customer. He is a customer.”
Many bystanders look on bemused at what is happening as products are strewn across the aisles. A man in a red top then tries to break up the fight. In the clip, he says: “There were five of you on a woman. Just calm down, calm down.”
