The fight broke out in the Aldi car park in Gorton, Greater Manchester, at around 4am. Police were called to reports of a brawl breaking out involving up to 50 people. The area was cordoned off but it has now been removed.

It is believed a woman was struck by a vehicle and was treated for serious injuries in an ambulance.

A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said: “Police were called at 4am this morning (Sunday 15 August) to a report of a large fight involving nearly 50 people on a car park off Garratt Way, Manchester.

“On officers’ arrival, the group dispersed and a woman in her 30s was being treated in an ambulance – it is believed a vehicle had collided with her and she suffered serious but not life-threatening injuries.

“No arrests have been made and enquiries are ongoing.”

A witness who lives opposite the car park said he could hear screaming from the car park at around 3am.

He told the Manchester Evening News: “I just thought it was normal things but then the screaming didn’t stop.

“I saw a lot of people in the parking lot screaming at each other.”

He said he heard a bang and a woman screaming.

Another witness said she heard screaming and shouting but did not think anything unusual as there are often people making noise in that area.
