Cop injured after being bottled as dozens spark chaos in mass brawl

A COP has been injured after being bottled in the street – while a mass brawl broke out just five minutes away.

The officer was hit by a flying bottle near the Shoreditch tube station in East London just after 10pm on Friday.

He was treated at the scene by paramedics for a cut to the head, and was taken to hospital as a precaution.

A man was arrested in relation to the attack.

Witnesses reported seeing up to 10 police cars parked outside the station after the attack.

Elsewhere in Shoreditch last night, a mass fight involving dozens of brawlers broke out near the high street.

Video of the brutal scrap was shared on social media.

The footage showed a large group punching each other on the footpath and the road, disrupting traffic.

Women can be heard screaming during the fight, as men on the street wrestle with and strike each other.

The violence came on a chaotic night across London.

Five people were shot – including one reportedly with a sub-machine gun – within just hours.

Two were shot in Brixton just before 7pm, another two people were shot in Hackney between 1am and 2am on Saturday, and a fifth person was injured in Croydon at 1.40am.
