Police 'break up gang fight' on Bournemouth beach

Police in Bournemouth broke up a fight between two gangs on the beach as horrified onlookers watched on, an eyewitness has said.

Video filmed on Friday afternoon (July 31) shows bikini-clad women being taken away by police and around a dozen people in hi-vis jackets on a crowded Bournemouth beach, yards from the pier. One of the women, who is black and being escorted away by police, says: "You're !"

"Something's kicking off on Bournemouth beach, police everywhere," the eyewitness can be heard saying in the video. "It was a big fight between two gangs on the beach," he added.

"Lots of gangs down here and all drunk," the filmer told .

According to UK media, Bournemouth, Christchurch, and Poole Council said people should "avoid" the beaches at Bournemouth East and West, Sandbanks, and Mudeford due to fears social distancing could not be observed.
