Dramatic footage shows a vicious London brawl where a man in his 40s is beaten to the ground and left unconscious in the street.

The concerned driver issues a ‘code red’, alerting police to the fight on Katharine Street at 3.30am on July 13, when one participant collapses to the ground after taking a severe beating.

‘It’s a fight over here where I am, they are killing each other, send the police ASAP,’ the driver says. 

‘One guy is down they are killing each other, man.’

The person on the other end of the radio asks if they have any weapons.  

‘There’s some sticks, I don’t know exactly,’ the driver says. ‘One guy I think is dead, I don’t know just call the police ASAP.’ 

He says the group started fighting in the park and came towards his bus, which he claims has 24 cameras.
