The man is then aggressively kicked and stamped on while another youth repeatedly whacks him over the head with what appears to be a golf stick.

A woman intervenes in the brawl, attempting to stop one of the attackers, before another man helps and chases them away.
He then keeps the attacker at arm’s length, who shouts at the man lying on the ground.
Other members of the public help to restrain the attacker as the victim, who seems dazed, stands up and walks off down the road.
Towards the end of the video, the victim takes off a satchel and passes it to another man, who hands it to one of the gang members before they all walk away.

One wrote: ‘Those people saved that lad’s life…’
Another said: ‘Well done to those passersby – especially the two ladies who were first there.’
A third added: ‘Very brave woman’.
