A police spokesman said a 31-year-old man from Normanton, arrested on suspicion of affray, has been released on police bail.

Ch Insp Darren Williams, of Wakefield District Police, said: “Enquiries are ongoing today regarding the circumstances of the fighting at Xscape and officers are also viewing CCTV and available footage online.

“Clearly this would have been a distressing incident to witness for those attending the leisure park at the time and this sort of behaviour is totally unacceptable and will not be tolerated.

“It must also be stressed that this sort of large scale incident is very unusual for the centre.

“I would ask anyone who can help identify those involved, or who has filmed the incident themselves and has footage which they can provide, to contact Sgt Alex Macleod at the Castleford Neighbourhood Policing Team on 101.”
