Shocking moment FIGHT breaks out between two women on school-run as fed-up locals block parent drivers with deckchairs | The Sun
THIS is the shocking moment a fight broke out between two women on a school-run after fed-up locals blocked parent drivers with deck chairs.
The long-standing feud reached boiling point on the quiet South Wales cul de sac this week, despite cops already being forced to set up patrols.
Those who live on Lon Derw Street say they've had issues with school-run parents parking outside their homes and blocking their driveways for years.
This week they opened up about barricading the road near the 200-pupil Brynmenyn Primary School in Bridgend by sitting across it on plastic chairs.
Shock footage has now emerged of two women fighting on the road.
The women can be heard yelling at each other while appearing to intimidate each other as bystanders try to hold them apart.

One witness told MailOnline: "It's not the first fight and it won't be the last – it's got worse since the kids went back to school.
"I can see it from both sides, the parents want to pick their children up safely from school but the residents are fed up of being blocked in by inconsiderate parking."
Residents of the 19-home estate say they fear the row may never end as there are no double-yellow lines on their street.
But school-run parents argue they're just briefly stopping so they can safely pick up their youngsters.

This week resident Mal Harris slammed: "It can be carnage out there at times, with dozens of cars lining the pavements and roads, blocking people in to their drive-ways, and causing tensions to flare.
"Police have been out which does stop the issue for a short while, but obviously they can't be here all the time and when they leave it goes right back to how it was before.
"Obviously it's very stressful to the people who live here when they can't get in or out of their properties."
Bridgend County Borough Council (BCBC) said: "If any vehicle causes an obstruction by parking inconsiderately on a public highway, it should be reported to South Wales Police so officers can assess whether an obstruction has occurred.
"Safety is paramount and there are parking restrictions on the access road to the school to assist with road safety and to facilitate access to residential properties in the area.
"Civil parking enforcement officers, who are employed by BCBC, also patrol this area and enforce parking restrictions where appropriate.
"We would like to remind parents/carers that alternative options are available including active travel routes which offer safe access to and from the school."
