Face mask row sparks BRAWL on train as furious passengers come to blows – leaving kids in tears
A FACE mask row on a train sparked a massive brawl between furious passengers and left kids in tears.
The fight broke out after a man wearing a white face mask started shouting at other passengers, “wear a mask".
In footage of the scuffle, others start shouting back over the seats “You’re an embarrassment, you’re a f****** embarrassment.”
Fellow passengers on the train from York try to calm down the situation and saying "let's think of the children" but the argument escalates to the point where people can be seen grappling over the train seats.
The man who went up and down the carriage then swings a punch towards a non-face mask-wearing passenger.
The brawl reaches its peak when the man who was originally telling people to wear a mask shouts at one-man "you've got one chance to walk away" before shouting at the top of his lungs and trying to get out of his seat.
In the background two women who are pushing and pulling each other end up grappling on the seats, with one of them swinging a punch at the other.
Ms Tasker said it was "utterly terrifying" and that children were left in tears on the carriage.

She told Yorkshire Live: "Basically the bloke to the left with the bald head started questioning where people’s masks were the moment the train departed from York.
"He was told he was upsetting kids by shouting, to which he hurled abuse back."
She said that the family who were the focus of his rage then left to another carriage.
The dispute about masks continued though and while other people who were on the carriage said they were exempt "he still carried on swearing and telling them to prove it".
"YOU'RE AN EMBARASSMENT"
She also said that the man who was at the centre of the dispute was escorted from the train by police in Malton.
The fight broke out after the train left York station at around 8pm on Saturday (December 11).
