The warden was caught on camera violently kicking out at a driver in appalling scenes.

Footage of the scrap in Leicesterbelieved to have been taken this week, shows a driver leaving his car in a parking bay.

As the driver leaves his car, the traffic warden launches himself at him.

He then boots the car door into the driver, as he falls back into the car from the weight of the blow.

A crowd of people are shown gathering around the fight, with the cameraman exclaiming: “Allah, Allah.”

While holding the ticket machine and wearing a hi-vis vest, he continues his attack even after slamming the car door.

But he is soon put on the back foot after the man in the car fights back.

The traffic warden is then clocked in the face with a brutal blow, forcing him to retreat down Belvoir Street.
