One said: “You sure this is Doncaster cos I don’t recognise this place at all.”

Another said: “This isn’t in Donny.”

The Free Press is attempting to verify where and when the footage was filmed.

According to its report, The Sun said some revellers hoisted chairs and threw them at brawlers during the violence.

In the film two men can be seen grappling before others join in.

Shocking footage shows the men throwing punches as women scream - before a shirtless man and a supporter in an England shirt become the first to join the fray.

Moments later, another man in a Three Lions shirt rushes in while holding a bottle of beer in one hand.

The fan recording the footage then scrambles to get away from the violence as a man in a pink top launches a flying kick at one of those involved.

Another of the fighters then hoists a chair and sends it flying over brawlers' heads.

At least ten people appear to be involved as others scatter.

Earlier in the tournament, police were called in to Doncaster town centre after a mass brawl erupted in Hall Gate following England’s 1-0 defeat of Croatia.

South Yorkshire Police reported that a large group of people were fighting outside the Slug and Lettuce. Officers attended and the group was dispersed with no arrests made.

It is understood there were a number of minor scuffles in Doncaster town centre following Sunday’s defeat by Italy.
