Shocking footage has captured a fight breaking out at a petrol station which was sparked after a woman refused to wear a mask, it is claimed.
Two women were attacking another woman at a petrol station in Oldham, Greater Manchester, which is under Tier 3 – the strictest Covid restrictions.
The bust-up started after a couple flew into a rage and confronted a group of people for not wearing face coverings, it is alleged.
In the dramatic clip a man is seen talking to another man in a red jacket, before putting his hands on him as a woman in grey, who is not wearing a mask look on.
Two women then attack the woman in grey, with one hitting her across the head with her right hand.
