A video of a woman lying in March High Street, as her boyfriend shields her for protection, has been viewed more than 80,000 times following an alleged attack in the town in the early hours of Sunday.

The clip shows women shouting at the female victim who is lying lifeless on the floor, covered by her partner who is protecting her, outside Stotts fish and chip restaurant.

Police have launched an investigation into the incident and are appealing for witnesses who may have seen what happened at about 12.34am overnight on Saturday night into Sunday morning (7).

The victim Emily Szebesta says she has a bald patch on the back of her head and is cut and bruised to her face and body from where she was kicked.

A spokesman for Cambridgeshire Police said: “We were called at 12.34am yesterday (April 7) with reports a woman had been assaulted in the High Street, March, by a group of women.
