Doorman sustained a suspected fractured eye socket, broken nose and a suspected broken hand, when he was attacked outside Colchester Yates

A yob punched a security guard to the floor in a savage fight outside a pub.

A video filmed by a witness shows a group of men starting to punch each other in the street as they leave a pub in Colchester, Essex, in the early hours of Saturday morning

 

In the clip, a man in a white T-shirt hits a doorman in the face outside the Yates bar.

Shortly after, the man is thrown to the ground in the middle of the road.

As more people get involved in the fight, security guards from the pub try to break them apart.

When two of the men fall to the ground, others gather around to try to help.

The clip shows that another man is then grabbed in a headlock and continues to try to struggle free.

As the scene calms, one of the men can be seen speaking to the security guards and says: “I’ve got my hands up.”

The clip also shows some blood splattered on the pavement around where one of the men fell.

The video was posted on Twitter by @CrimeLdn and has had over 30,000 views.
