A shirtless man was captured knocking over three others in a horrifying brawl outside a McDonald’s last week.

The video clip has since gone viral, accumulating millions of views online.

Three men, aged 53, 37 and 23, were arrested on suspicion of affray after police officers rushed to reports of a fight on Ashford High Street at around 7pm last Friday.

The 53-year-old man has since been released on bail, while the 37-year-old and a 23-year-old have been released under investigation.
