Scenes of violence and chaos broke out across the UK today as millions of customers behaving ‘like animals’ flooded shops and supermarkets to try and get their hands on cut-price goods during the Black Friday sales.

Police were called to dozens of supermarkets as the midnight sales descended into chaos, with shoppers resorting to wrestling one another on the shop floor as they competed for TVs discounted by as little as £60.

One Tesco store in Manchester had to be closed just 36 minutes after opening due to fighting, while another customer was arrested on suspicion of assault in the Salford branch after allegedly telling a staff member that he would ‘smash their face in’.

Two other customers were arrested for public order offences by officers in Manchester, who dealt with some of the worst scenes of violence on the biggest day of discount shopping in the year.

As the discounting frenzy reached fever pitch, there were also reports of staff being left in tears in Cardiff, while another female staff member was apparently given a black eye following a melée in Stretford.

Shoppers in Bristol grappled over a TV which have been reduced from £399 to £249 at the Tesco store in Eastville during today's Black Friday sales
