SPANISH police have made several arrests after more than 50 people took part in a massive street brawl in the party resort of Magaluf.
Hooligans were filmed kicking and punching each other and throwing missiles including bottles in the orgy of violence in the early hours of Sunday morning in the coastal Majorcan town.
The chaos that broke out between two large groups went on for around 10 minutes before police intervened and managed to restore order.
The cause of the fracas is unknown and there has not yet been any official comment from the Magaluf authorities.
According to several witnesses, the fight erupted between a group of North African youngsters – allegedly Moroccans and Algerians – versus Spaniards.
Yet, the brawl snowballs and ends up drawing in revellers from different nationalities.

Police are currently investigating the incident and trying to identify those involved by sweeping local hospitals in case anyone sought medical assistance for injuries suffered in the braw.
The violence kicked off in the street outside the popular nightclub positioned on the infamous strip, Panama Jack.
One youngster was seen being knocked to the ground with a punch to the face and getting up before others started lashing out with their feet and fists as onlookers screamed.
A local commenting on the scenes said sarcastically: “Magaluf in modernisation phase and elimination of drunken tourism.”
It comes after years of attempts by local authorities to clean up Magaluf’s image of disorder, alcohol and drugs and also try to crack down on rowdy Brits that flock to the party town.
In March a British tourist was arrested after allegedly mowing down two holidaymakers including a UK teenager in Magaluf.
No Brits are believed to have been involved in Sunday morning’s violence.
