Footage showed two traffic wardens being assaulted in broad daylight in Birmingham.

The disturbing video was filmed in Stratford Road in the Sparkhill area of the city.

The video showed one traffic warden being knead in the face while another has punches thrown at him in the middle of the busy street.

One of the wardens is seen being pushed onto a parked car before being punched and kicked.

Meanwhile, onlookers watch on and traffic continues to flow.

According to witnesses, the attackers struck after claiming the civil enforcement officers had “no power anymore”.

Birmingham City Council effectively announced bankruptcy and bosses came under fire for the financial meltdown, with the Conservatives blaming bureaucratic “incompetence” by Labour for causing Birmingham’s bankruptcy debacle.

It was revealed that Birmingham spent around £184 million to host the 2022 Commonwealth Games while also spending taxpayers’ cash on “inclusive” street signs.

The crisis has fuelled fresh speculation the city’s 1.1million residents will face a 10 per cent hike in council tax, as happened when other authorities ended up in a similar plight – with furious locals lashing out at council chiefs over the financial fiasco.

Reacting to the assault, one witness said:

“These guys were just doing their jobs and obviously have nothing to do with what’s going on at the council.

“They were saying they had no power any more around here and several idiots tried to drive them out of the area using the bankruptcy stuff as an excuse.

“It does make you worry what’s going through these people’s heads. They haven’t got a clue and I fear things could escalate.

“It’s like they believe the authorities have no power over them any more.”

“What is attacking traffic wardens going to achieve anyway? It’s just moronic behaviour and it took place in broad daylight in front of families with children.”

A Birmingham City Council spokesperson said: “Nobody should suffer abuse or assault for simply trying to do their job and we will be contacting the company that employs the officers to ensure they are OK and see if any support is needed.”

Inspector Neil Kirkpatrick, of West Midlands Police, said:

“No one should have to be subjected to violence in the course of their work and I’m relieved they did not suffer more serious injuries.

“We’re determined to bring their assailants to justice and I ask that anyone who witnessed the assault or who has information should contact us if they haven’t already done so.”

Three men, aged 20, 23 and 31, have since been arrested on suspicion of assault and are in police custody.

Inspector Kirkpatrick also suggested that police are still looking for others in relation to the incident.
