Disturbing footage shows gangs of children in the middle of a mass brawl as they attack each other in a frenzy.
Police were called to the massive fight involving children as young as 12 years old in Merseyside on Wednesday night (February 17) ECHO reports.
Children were seen wildly punching, kicking and dragging each other by the hair in violent scenes caught on video.
The fight broke out on Bridge Road in Litherland shortly after 6.30pm, with police being called minutes later to reports of a "disturbance".
A young girl suffered head injuries after she was allegedly "stamped on", according to one shocked witness.
It is understood this witness attempted to break up the violence and physically tried to separate those fighting.
In the clip, people are screaming while the teens fight and shouts of "f*** off" are also heard in the background.
It is not clear at this stage what started the altercation or why a large group was meeting up while lockdown restrictions still apply.
Merseyside Police are investigating the fight and said officers managed to break it up.

It said: "At around 6.50pm yesterday (Wednesday 17 February) police received reports of a disturbance involving a group of youths on Bridge Road, Litherland.
