They shout at him, deliver kicks and punches while he tries to defend himself and also try to drag him out.

One even lands blows after the arrival of the first of several police cars.

Officers then try to calm things down and parties are asked to keep their distance.

A police spokesman said: “A grey Volkswagen Scirocco was in collision with a white Fiat Punto and a Blue Dacia Sandero. Officers attended and a man aged 23 was arrested for driving while disqualified. A man aged 28 was taken to hospital with injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening. Enquiries are ongoing.”
