The Labour MP said he was walking through Worksop when he saw the altercation taking place.

Labour MP John Mann has been hailed as a “hero” after breaking up a fight between two women in his constituency.

Mr Mann, who represents the north Nottinghamshire constituency of Bassetlaw, said he was walking through Worksop when he saw the altercation take place.

He said a member of the public recognised him as he stopped the “nasty fight” in Queen Street.

“One was getting kicked in the head by the other, and there was a lot of blood. A crowd had gathered to watch,” he said.

“I broke up the fight and separated the two women.”

Users of the social media site praised Mr Mann for his efforts, with @philskelding calling him a “hero”, while @rebeltroop said: “Reinforces the whole ‘man of the people’ mantra”.

Nottinghamshire Police said no arrests were made.

A spokesman for the force said: “We received a third-party report of an altercation involving two women in Queen Street, Worksop, just after 3pm on Wednesday.

“Officers attended the scene and spoke to the two women, who were believed to be involved.

“Both parties denied any offences had occurred.”
