Security staff and bar stewards had to intervene when a massive drunken brawl broke out at the Balmoral Show yesterday.

A video of the incident at Northern Ireland's premier agricultural event emerged on Facebook.

And so far the footage has had more than 100,000 views, attracting more than 4,000 comments from stunned viewers.

In a statement, the Royal Ulster Agricultural Society (RUAS) said: "There was an altercation at the bar area, which was quickly brought under control by the event security personnel and we believe no one was seriously injured.

"It is sad that a few people resorted to this behaviour when tens of thousands of people enjoyed a fun family day out.

"The society will be fully investigating this matter and appropriate action taken."
