Footage emerges of machete-wielding gang fight in Birmingham

Footage has emerged showing what appears to be a fight between a gang in Birmingham and a machete wielding nutcase.

The video shows a hoodie wearing hoodlum waving a machete around before he’s wrestled to the ground by a group of lads – and is then beaten viciously.

A West Midlands Police source said: “We received reports of a group of boys fighting on Bevington Road, at around 6pm on Saturday.

“When officers arrived no-one remained at the scene. There were no arrests and no reports of any injuries. Witnesses reported a machete had been seen.
