A cage fighting event which included children as young as eight has created a storm of controversy.
Footage of the bouts posted on the Internet have provoked an outcry with the British Cage Fighting Association describing parents who allow their children to take part as "morons."
The event was staged at the Greenlands New Labour Social Club in Preston.
At one point, one of the schoolboy fighters is seen to break down in tears.
Lancashire police say they will now investigate whether children were put at risk by taking part in the event.
