VIDEO footage of a gang of youths riding bikes through Asda and punching a customer has been posted online.

The film called “The Maddest Day Ever In Brighton” shows the gang cycling into oncoming traffic in the middle of the city, arguing with passersby and rampaging through the superstore at Brighton Marina in front of shocked shoppers.

The Argus:

One youth in the group of about 15, who are believed to be aged between 13 and 17, wrestled with an elderly customer before another punched a shopper in the chest.

Desperate Asda staff can be heard shouting “security to the fresh aisle” as the youths stormed through the store.

The Argus:

Moments earlier in the video, posted on YouTube, they were cycling on one wheel into oncoming traffic in London Road, laughing as they weaved in and out of cars.

The gang members, who have cameras on their bikes, cycle down a one-way street, steering away from traffic moments before impact. In one shocking clip they ride into oncoming traffic at the Preston Circus junction.

The Argus:

They can also be seen arguing with a member of the public who confronted them about their dangerous behaviour outside a bike store in London Road.

The man says: “You little chavvy f***ers... go learn how to use the f***ing road.”

One youth replies: “You’re calling us chavvy? You live in Brighton.”

Another calls him a “nitburger”.

In other shocking moments during the 24-minute video, the gang cycles in the paddling pool on Brighton seafront, into traffic in Madeira Drive and run from police sirens after appearing to get in an argument at McDonald’s in London Road.

The video was posted to one of the youth’s YouTube channel, which has 84,000 subscribers. It has been watched more than 15,000 times. Other videos on the channel are titled “no hand wheelie through traffic”, “I got run over under a truck” and “pulled over by police for no reason”.

The Argus:

The Argus has chosen to blur the youth’s faces and not name the YouTube channel as those involved may be under 16.

An Asda spokesman said: “The incident at our Brighton Marina store in June was totally unacceptable and whilst we were relieved that none of our customers were injured, we will not tolerate this kind of behaviour in our shops.

"Our colleagues acted quickly to remove the trespassers from the store within a matter of minutes to ensure our customers were not disrupted for too long.

"However we would again like to apologise for the inconvenience caused and reassure customers that there have been no further incidents of this nature and we have reported this matter to the police. ”
