British punters disgrace themselves in crazy mass brawl at Royal Ascot


British horse racing has been given a nasty black eye after a shocking mass brawl broke out at the prestigious Royal Ascot racecourse.

In terrible vision uploaded to social media, dozens of punters (male and female) were captured brawling on the street outside the world-famous venue.

Onlookers could be seen running for cover as wild haymakers were thrown left, right and centre.

Horse owners are now threatening to boycott Royal Ascot after the second shocking brawl in as many weeks.

One man was left unconscious in a horrific fight involving up to 50 people last week at Goodwood.

“Racetracks need to invest in more robust security measures, which may even mean paying for a more significant police presence,” Syndicate owner Matthew Lincoln told The Guardian.

“It might sound drastic but how else are we to deter troublemakers?”

Ascot communications manager Ashley Morton-Hunte said track officials would meet with police in coming days to decide what extra security measures would need to be put in place for the next race meeting.

“There are always things to learn after a race day and we will be reviewing everything and putting appropriate measures in place for Royal Ascot next month,” Morton-Hunte said.

“Our annual preparation for Royal Ascot includes a scenario session, which will take place this week, as planned.

“Topical issues are discussed with relevant authorities and preventative measures will be agreed then.”

The shocking footage immediately went viral on social media, with Twitter users slamming the unsavoury fans.
