The incident broke out at a set of traffic lights along the busy Coventry Road, in Sheldon, Birmingham on Tuesday (22 June), before a woman intervened.

Attacked in broad daylight

The men are shown punching and kicking the driver, who eventually steps out from the vehicle and starts exchanging blows with the attackers in the middle of the street, on one of the main commuter routes into Birmingham.

A woman can be heard shouting “leave it, leave it” as she puts herself in between the men in an effort to bring the two-on-one attack to an end.

Brave actions praised

The woman has been praised for her brave actions in breaking up the fight after the footage racked up tens of thousands of views on social media.

Users wrote: "Big up the women. They saved the man dem from embarrassing theirselves [sic] even further."

"At least people had the decency to step in."

Meanwhile, others were quick to condemn the attack, saying it was “shocking” to see a brawl break out in broad daylight, while one user described it as an “embarrassing” display for the city.

Social media users said: ""The driver stood his own despite it being two on one. Shocking scenes to see in broad daylight."

"Birmingham's lawless streets at their finest once again. Great way to promote our city lads. Embarrassing."

"Absolute cowards, two on one attack - and even then he held his own. Fair play for standing up to those two morons."
