EN-GBA racecourse has vowed to take a “zero tolerance” approach after a mass brawl broke out at Haydock Park on Merseyside.

Footage posted on social media showed about 40 men piling in as two groups traded blows.
As horrified spectators watched on, a woman clutching a small child had to be led to safety after appearing to get caught up in the fighting.

Stewards then intervened to keep the two sides apart.

A Haydock Park spokesman said: "We take a zero tolerance position on anti-social behaviour.
"The perpetrators were ejected at the time and we are continuing to work with the police on this matter."

Merseyside Police said on Saturday evening that one man was arrested.

The force said in a statement: “At around 4.50pm, officers were called to Haydock Racecourse following reports of a disturbance involving a group of men.

“Officers attended the scene and following further enquiries, a 26-year old male was arrested on suspicion of affray and possession of a controlled drug.

“No complaints were made and there have been no reports of any injuries at this time.
“The arrested male has been taken to a local police station for questioning.”
The issue of violence on racecourses captured the headlines last year, when fights broke out at Goodwood and Ascot on successive weekends.
