Mass fight with British tourists breaks out on Barcelona beach with an attack on a metal pole rival before the fight is broken up by police and street vendors
- Two groups of men broke into a cruel fight on the beach of La Barceloneta, Barcelona
- One of the British tourists heard saying: & # 39; You give me back my ****** money & # 39;
- The police were called to drag the group apart and stop the aggressive fight
This is the shocking moment when two groups of men, including British tourists, visit each other in scenes in the Wild West on a beach in Barcelona.
Other sun worshipers were filmed as they picked up their things and ran for safety while the men got punches before a member of the rival group started beating the British with a metal pole.
One of the tourists involved in the fight – a man with a Cockney accent in red shorts – bumped the face of another in blue swimsuit when he protested: & they are mine, they are mine , these are mine. & # 39;
Other sun worshipers were forced to flee the beach when two groups of men, including British tourists, broke a violent fight. A man used a metal bar to hit people in the head while fighting on the beach at La Barceloneta
A friend tried to reach the too heavy sun offer with the metal pole in his hand, moaning: & You hit me in the head & # 39;
A man in white shorts responded to the attack on his friend by being run over and slapping the aggressor in the face while someone else shouted in English: & # 39; you'd better shoot. & # 39;
Frightened families had to distance themselves from the violent argument when the man in black shorts picked up a metal pole and attacked the British group.
While it is unclear what caused the fight, they heard a British tourist shout: "Give me back my money *****"
The Briton in the red shorts continued to protest against an unidentified value that had been taken before he shouted: "You give me my money back."
He then points his finger and repeats his question: & # 39; You give me back my ****** money. & # 39;
A friend tried to reach the overweight sunbather with the metal pole in his hand, moaning: & You hit me in the head like that & # 39; in a temporary truce before the punching and kicking started again.
Street vendors boarded and tried to break up the men until the police were called.
Distant sirens could be heard when the two groups of hunters were overpowered by officers in the sand.
The shocking incident happened on the beach at La Barceloneta, which has been at the center of tension between holidaymakers and locals for years, saying their workers' neighborhood has been destroyed by massive Magaluf-style tourism.
A spokesperson for the regional police of Mossos d & Esquadra, who sent officers to the scene, confirmed that the incident had been dealt with by the local police in the service of the Barcelona town hall.
No one was immediately available for comment from the town hall this morning – to explain why the violence had stopped and whether the British had caught a member of the rival group stealing their possessions.
Two summers ago a couple was filmed with al fresco sex on the same beach.

The couple were identified as vacationers by angry locals who used the images to complain about the drunken tourists who, according to them, ruined their former fishing village.
The working-class area near the coastline of the Catalan capital has been the scene of long-running protests against drunken Magaluf-like holiday makers and illegal tourist apartments.
The protests started in La Barceloneta but spread to other parts of the city, including Poblenou.
Months of dissatisfaction erupted in 2014 with noisy street protests after a group of tourists were nude naked in broad daylight from a supermarket in La Barceloneta.
A neighborhood association that published footage of the beach fight with British tourists said: & # 39; A normal day on the beach at La Barceloneta in Barcelona. & # 39;
