This is the terrifying moment a machete brawl broke out in the middle of the street as bus passengers screamed in terror.

Three men were seen swinging blades at each other on Clapham Road, near Stockwell Underground Station, on Friday afternoon.

Passengers on a passing bus filmed the scuffle while crying out in shock as one of the men was chased into the Taste More fish and chip shop beside Pret A Manger. 

As the scene unfolded, one bus passenger gasped and said: ‘Look at the knives.’ Another added: ‘What is wrong with them.’

It appeared that the two men dressed in black were fighting the third, who was in a turquoise top and light grey trousers.
