It happened at around 4pm on Wednesday, at the top of Prince of Wales Road.

In the video a single-decker Stagecoach bus is parked in the road in the background, with the door open.

The driver, who is dressed in a Stagecoach jacket, can be seen swinging the man around in the road, before the pair fall and continue to brawl on the pavement.

Members of the public attempt to break up the fight, which lasts just over a minute, and after watching the scramble, shocked passengers begin filing off the bus.
