Fight breaks out between hikers at Snowdon summit for ‘skipping the queue’

A fight broke out between two hikers at the Snowdon summit as onlookers chanted "join the queue."

The scuffle took place over the bank holiday weekend as the summit was surrounded by queues of hikers.

Footage of the fight was uploaded on TikTok taken by a hiker, it showed the lengthy queue leading up to the trig point, reports Manchester Evening News.

However, tensions were raised as one hiker allegedly skipped the crowd and climbed up along a separate route, causing a fight to break out.

The footage shows a brief altercation between two men at the top, who can be seen pushing one another.

One is wearing a high vis jacket while the other appears to be in a Manchester United shirt.

The queueing crowds then begin to chant 'Join the queue' at the man, while another woman can be heard saying: "There's a queue!"

Kenan Ramsay filmed the incident and captioned it 'Don't do it'.

Snowdon is the highest in England and Wales and attracts more than half a million visitors every year.

It's also one of the hills involved in the popular Three Peaks challenge.

The incident took place just days after Welsh tourism leaders reminded people to be respectful of the Snowdonia National Park.

An open letter published last week warned against 'fly-camping' after a 'significant and worrying increase' in the number of people camping outside designated campsites.

The area has also struggled with inappropriately parked vehicles in recent weeks following a surge in the number of visitors post-lockdown.

On the official website it says: "Be willing to change your destination. Have a few options prepared in case you arrive somewhere that is increasingly getting busy."
