A travellers’ site was the scene of chaos when a violent mob battered an Audi with machetes and baseball bats before setting it on fire.
The shocking video is understood to have been filmed near Kirkcaldy, Scotland on July 20.
The man filming the violence could be heard saying: “There you go. This is what happens” as the vehicle was repeatedly attacked.
The row kicked off minutes after a road rage incident and car crash where a group of armed men fled the scene, the Daily Record reports.
Police and a helicopter were deployed as the violence escalated.
It’s known whether the silver Audi A4 was the same vehicle involved in the crash.
Detectives have urged witnesses, in particular those with dash-cam footage, to contact them on 101, quoting incident number 3629 of July 20, or make an anonymous report to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
