This is the dramatic moment a daylight brawl spilled into the street in front of shocked passers-by.

In the clip, filmed on Piccadilly in the city centre, two men begin throwing punches at each other in the middle of the road on Monday morning.

Two other men also rush into the middle of the street and egg on the brawlers, in front of gob-smacked commuters waiting at a nearby bus stop.

One of the men managed to floor the other man and keeps tugging his jumper in an attempt to pull it off.

He eventually manages to completely pull the man’s top off and runs away from the scene.

The other man can be seen punching his attacker in the face, before he walks off in the direction of Piccadilly Tavern, naked from the waist up.

But he then turns around and walks back to the scene and retrieves his top from the attacker, who is sat on the floor.

Police arrived at the scene just before 11.20am, but the men had fled from the scene before they arrived.

Officers are now searching for the men, who are believed to be aged in their 20s.

It is unknown if anyone involved in the brawl was seriously injured.

Ibrar Hussain, 29, who filmed the clip said: “It is just a normal for on a Monday, it is always happening.

“The police came shortly afterwards. If I was near them I would have felt scared, but I was safe indoors.”

A spokesman for Greater Manchester Police said: “We were called just before 11.20am to reports of an assault in Piccadilly in the city centre.

“No arrests have been made yet. The offenders have fled the scene prior to police arriving at the scene.”
