The man with the machete, wearing a grey jumper, edges towards the other, who is using a bottle as a weapon.

The man with the bottle, dressed in all white, flinches and throws the bottle off the ground, which smashes on the road, and runs away.

The ‘swordman’ then chases him, before a police car is seen arriving.

The man with the sword runs into a fenced-off park lane and is not seen again in the 36-second clip.
