The disburbing clip, shot on a mobile phone and shared on social media, was shot just before 7pm on Saturday evening close to Asda in Hulme in Manchester.

Several fireworks explode down the High Street, with one of them apparently almost hitting a member of the public, at which point a voice is heard asking: “What the f*** are you doing?”

They later said the area was regularly targeted by anti-social yobs, with such incidents occuring every weekend.

They told the Manchester Evening News: “The same group of teenagers every Saturday night gather outside fighting with each other and being the literal definition of antisocial.

“Disturbances of a similar nature happen every Saturday night without fail.

“I suppose this occasion was different due to it being that time of the year where fireworks are sold.”

There were regular problems with teenagers “riding around on bikes”’ screaming” and “fighting” and brawling.
