Four men aged 20 to 22 were subsequently arrested by police.
Meanwhile, another clip from a branch of supermarket Lidl in Aubervilliers near Paris shows more “youths” fighting with each other with some of them wielding weapons.

Another video clip shows shoppers at a supermarket in London screaming at each other and squabbling as they engage in panic buying.
Another clip from a Tesco in London features a customer threatening to ‘bring his friends’ after the store refuses to allow him to bulk buy water.
