SHOCKING footage has emerged of what appears to be a mother and daughter violently battering each other onto the ground of a housing estate.
The battling pair draw the attention of concerned neighbours and children, including one man armed with a baseball bat who struggles to pull the women apart.
The clip shows a woman wearing grey jogging trousers and a grey t-shirt shouting as she barges into another woman's garden at a Grangetown housing estate in Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire.
The woman, who is seen wearing wellies, finishes her cigarette before shoving a person standing in front of her aside to confront the woman shouting at her.
One of the women shouts: "So what are you gonna do?!"
The pair launch at each other and begin throwing punches.
The woman in wellies knocks the other woman to the ground as she is heard shouting: "Go on Trish.”
She then continues to punch her repeatedly on her head.
An unidentified man approaches the pair and pulls them apart, allowing the woman who was straddled to the ground to hit back.
Another woman wearing a red hoodie appears on the scene and is seen kicking at the woman lying on the ground.
The pair continue to scrap on the ground as someone can be heard saying: “Let them get on with it”.
A crowd begins to gather, including two young children before a man with a baseball bat appears on the scene.
A man is then seen bending down in an apparent attempt to try and break up the fight.
The fight continues onto a footpath before the pair are eventually broken up.
However, the women continue to hurl abuse at each before one is taken into a house and the other taken into a car.
One of the women shouts: "She's a f*****g idiot … I'm going to kill her."
