One witness, who did not want to be named, said: ‘There were hundreds of people in the park as it was a lovely day. A lot of families with kids were about and it couldn’t have been nice to witness this.
‘It was all a bit chaotic but fights then started breaking out all over the place. They were like a feral pack of animals.’
