Footage of a mass brawl outside a North London restaurant and bar resulted in one person needing hospital treatment after a fight reminiscent of a war zone broke out.
The scenes of brutal carnage exploded in the early hours of Sunday (December 5) morning outside the Hart Lounge in Southgate, Enfield.
The shocking video, which appears to have been taken on CCTV, shows dozens of young men fighting in the doorway of the Hart Lounge before spilling onto the street.

Cars were forced to drive around the men as constant fighting started between different parties, while a woman can be heard screaming for her life in the melee.
During the worst moments, young men can be seen getting floored by punches, and a man is clearly at one point kicked in the head.
The Met Police confirmed that they were called on Sunday to reports of people fighting at around 1.20am on Chase Road, where the bar is located, but made no arrests.
