A woman was reportedly knocked out as 'punches were flying everywhere' during a chaotic street brawl involving 20 people in a Welsh town centre.
Video footage shows up to 20 people reportedly brawled outside the Celtic Bar shortly after 2.15am on Saturday in Dynevor Street, Merthyr Tydfil.
One woman was knocked out and allegedly had her wedding ring stolen, while an 18-year-old man is in hospital with facial injuries.

The husband of the injured woman told WalesOnline: "It was a random attack. There was no incident previous to it.
"Everyone was outside the bar waiting to go home when about 12 to 20 young men started beating people up. Punches were flying everywhere.
"They even hit my wife in the face, knocked her to the floor and stole her wedding ring. My missus was knocked out for 10 minutes.
"She's got bruising all over her face, two teeth have gone through the inside of her lip and she's waiting for a follow-up hospital appointment to see if her nose is broken because they can't tell at the moment."
He said his 31-year-old wife already struggled for confidence and the attack has "knocked her for six".
The missing nine-carat Celtic-design gold wedding band is worth around £150. He claimed that around five men were also attacked and hurt in the clash.
South Wales Police Inspector Jon Duckham said: “An 18-year-old man suffered facial injuries and remains in hospital. A 31-year-old woman suffered minor injuries.
"We are investigating this disturbance and officers are carrying out enquiries to identify those responsible.
"We would like to thank the members of public who have already taken the time to contact us with information having witnessed what happened.
"Anyone else who witnessed any part of this disturbance is asked to contact us quoting occurrence 2300062521.”
