Boys' fight in cage feels barbaric, says Jeremy Hunt

Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt has condemned a fight between two boys who were watched by adults at a cage-fighting event as "barbaric".

The eight-year-olds were filmed wrestling in a cage at Greenlands Labour Club in Preston in front of about 250 adults.

Lancashire Police were investigating but have now said there were "no issues" for officers to pursue.

The culture secretary said there were concerns about such young children doing that type of sport.
