During the clip, members of staff approach the pair and grab their arms after they appear to refuse to leave.

She then smacks a security guard in the face and slings a punch towards another member of staff at the ground.
As more stewards descend upon the scene, the pair are eventually muscled out of their seats to jeers from other spectators.
The disagreement happened in front of children who were watching the game on a family day out.

It is not clear what started the skirmish, but an onlooker said the man had earlier fallen over in the stand, and had been up to the bar frequently.
A man, who filmed the scene, said: ‘It was pretty scary. Everyone was relieved when they were gone. There were quite a few families there.
‘Everyone felt uncomfortable. I was feeling scared and I was a good few rows back. It’s not what you expect at the cricket.’
