Gardai in Newbridge are appealing for witnesses to a street brawl in the town in the early hours of last Sunday morning.

Video footage of the fight, which took place on Edward Street, was taken by a passer-by and posted online.

It shows a van being driven at speed towards three three people. It appears as if the three people were thrown over the bonnet of the transit van before it sped off and turned back around.

Sticks appeared to have also been used in the attack.
