  • A shop worker who stepped in to break up the fight received a head injury 
  • Shocked shoppers could be seen running out of the way as the pair brawled 

This is the shocking moment two women brawled inside an Oxford Street store as shoppers hunted for bargains during Boxing Day sales.

A shop worker who stepped into break up the fight between the two women was left with a head injury as shocked customers watched on.

The incident occurred at clothes store Pull&Bear at 6.10pm on Monday as thousands descended on busy shopping districts across the UK to hunt for bargains in the sales.

Footage circulating on social media shows a member of staff braking up the two women that began to hit each other at the high street chain store.

In the video, a woman is seen grabbing what appears to look like a metal clothes rail, and then attempting to hit another customer. 

The woman on the receiving end then grabs a pair of jeans off the rack as she tries to hit her opponent back.

Other customers can be heard shouting amid the chaos and rushing to store’s exit to avoid getting caught up in the nasty scrap.

The two women were eventually broken up by a security guard.

Yesterday millions of shoppers appeared to have defied Boxing Day expectations with early indications suggesting footfall at UK retail destinations is up by as much as half on this time last year.

A statement by the Metropolitan Police said: ‘Police were called at 18:10hrs on Monday, 26 December to reports of an altercation at a shop in Oxford Street.

‘Officers found a member of staff with a head injury. He declined medical assistance and continued his work.

‘There have been no arrests. Enquiries are ongoing.’

It is not yet known what caused an argument to erupt between the two shoppers, or whether they were later questioned or asked to leave the store.

Social media users who viewed the footage sent praise to the security guard after he forced the two women apart.  

Huge numbers flocked into London’s Oxford Street for the post-Christmas sales 

Yesterday millions of shoppers appeared to have defied Boxing Day expectations with early indications suggesting footfall at UK retail destinations is up by as much as half on this time last year.

Fears had been raised the cost-of-living crisis coupled with crippling rail strikes could affect the traditionally popular shopping day.

But central London, which has been hit hard by industrial action from transport unions, saw footfall more than double on Boxing Day morning.

Industry analyst Springboard said data up until midday on Monday showed footfall was higher across all three key destination types compared with the same period in 2021.

On high streets it was up by 59.4 per cent, in shopping centres by 46.6 per cent, and in retail parks by 33.7 per cent, Springboard said.

With footfall in central London up 139.2 per cent, the data firm suggested negative impacts from industrial action on the railways had not materialised as expected.

However, Boxing Day footfall this year has still not returned to pre-pandemic levels, remaining 30.5 per cent lower than on December 26 in 2019.
