A MUM pulled a 15-year-old girl’s hair before goading her daughter to “bang her out” during a teen fight in a London park.
Horrific footage on social media shows the 41-year-old mum circling a pair of fighting girls before joining in, on Sunday.
The mum, known in this story as Sarah* can be heard shouting “get her” as her daughter dragged her rival by the hair, before kicking and punching her on the grass.
The fight in Erith, South East London, is believed to have erupted after months of disagreements between the two girls.
When Sarah’s daughter appears to be losing the fight, she wades into the scrap herself pulling the 15-year-old’s hair before shoving it to the ground.
She shouts: “get up, get up”, in fear that her daughter may lose the brawl.
As the girls tussle continue to tussle on the grass, other youngsters can be seen watching in the background.
Sarah then tells the child filming, “take the phone down”.

The 15-year-old girl's mum
The 15-year-old’s mum claims cop’s defended Sarah’s behaviour, as she was only trying to break up the fight.
But police have since said they have launched an investigation into the attack by three females on one 15-year-old girl.
Sarah at first denied that she was egging on her daughter but after admitting it was her voice in the clip she said “if they’re standing having a fair fight I can’t say that?”
The 15-year-old girl’s mum said: “This has made me angry.
“The girl looked like she didn’t even want to fight. The mother started egging her on to fight her.
“Mums should not behave like that. Mums should either say ‘come on, let’s be friends, or if you can’t be friends, be civil’.
“She’s gone the complete wrong way about it.”
I know it appears I’m grabbing her hair, but I’m trying to pull [the 15-year-old girl] off
Sarah said she tried to tell the girls “be friends or be civil but they didn’t want to do that”.
She claimed she was called by her niece who told her the girls were fighting in the park, after months of bickering.
Sarah added: “I know it appears I’m grabbing her hair, but I’m trying to pull [the 15-year-old girl] off.”
