Horror brawl caught on CCTV

Police are trying to trace two men who were caught on CCTV taking part in a "violent and ugly" attack in Leeds.

The shocking footage shows one of the attackers repeatedly kicking the other in the face during the fight involving three men on Temple Moor View, in the Osmondthorpe area, in October last year.

Just moments earlier, the victim of the kicking can be seen smashing a bottle over the head of the third man, who was later identified as Gareth Tate.

Tate was last week given a six-month suspended sentence and ordered to carry out 240 hours of unpaid work after he pleaded guilty to affray at Leeds Crown Court. He reportedly told the court the fight began after he refused to give cigarettes to one of the other men after a night out on October 25.

The pair were caught on CCTV exchanging punches and wrestling on a grass verge before Tate is hit over the head with the bottle. Tate can then be seen restraining his attacker, who is subsequently kicked in the face by a third man who enters the fight.

West Yorkshire Police are now trying to trace the other two men involved in the brawl.

Detective Inspector Nicola Bryar, from North East Leeds CID, said: "This was a violent and ugly incident in which all those involved acted in a disgraceful and dangerous manner.

"The sentence of Gareth Tate brings one of these men to justice but I would appeal for the public's help in identifying the other two suspects who took part in this vicious assault.

"In the CCTV footage one of the men, who is wearing a light coloured jacket, is seen walking with a dark-haired woman just before the assault takes place.

"The other suspect, who is seen repeatedly kicking the other unknown man in the face, hides his face from the CCTV camera as he continues the violent assault."
