A man has been taken to hospital after being stabbed in broad daylight during a "large fight" in Hyde Park, central London.

Footage posted on social media and seen by LBC appears to show a man in black being chased through the park by a group of males on Tuesday evening.

He is then seen falling over before being punched and kicked by multiple people.

One onlooker among a large crowd, which appears to include children, can be heard in the background shouting: "There's a knife, there's a knife."

The group then quickly disperse, leaving the man laying on the floor.
