SICKENING mobile phone footage captures the moment thugs brandishing a baseball bat and a mallet brutally batter a man in a bloody roadside brawl.
The shocking clip shows the victim being chased along the central reservation by two men as terrified motorists watch on.
The victim can be seen trying to flee his attackers as they chase him along the A2 in Kent
Moments later he is seen vainly trying to protect himself as his first attacker grabs him before raining blows down on him with what appears to be a mallet.
Another yob then joins in the attack, battering the man repeatedly on his head and upper body with a baseball bat.
The horror incident happened in broad daylight on Thursday on the A2 road in Kent.
A motorist who filmed the footage, who asked not to be named, said: “This was more than a road rage incident. Those thugs meant business. They were tooled up with baseball bats and what looked to be a mallet and were giving the poor guy a proper doing.”

Our source added: “I was stuck in traffic on the A2 when I saw the fight break out close to the central reservation.
“The victim had his arms over his head, trying to protect himself, and was trying to run, but his attacker was all over him, smashing him about the head and upper body.
“A few seconds later another guy brandishing a baseball bat joined in. It was terrifying. People were tooting their horns but I didn’t see anyone get out of their cars. I think they were too frightened to.”
