A sickening video shows two travellers covered in blood and bruises after a bare-knuckle fight that lasted for 30 minutes.

Onlookers who turned up to enjoy the fight were so appalled they repeatedly pleaded with the men to stop but were ignored.

Eventually the punch-drunk fighters were forced by the ‘referees’ to stop battering each other, shake hands, and call it a draw.

The two men, named in the video as Davie Joyce and Michael Navin, battled each other in front of a crowd in a wet, abandoned car park in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire.

They were said to be fighting over an ‘unsettled argument’ between both families who had been calling each other out on Youtube.

Facebook page Bare Knuckle Fighting shared the clip, which now has over 200,000 views and 1,400 likes.

The footage begins with two referees, one from each of the warring families, explaining the rules before the pair begin to exchange blows.
