Footage showing children as young as eight taking part in a wrestling match inside a cage has been criticised by the NSPCC, which has called it "disturbing".

The video shows two boys wrestling in front of a crowd of cheering adults.

The organiser of the event in Preston said it didn't breach any rules and has insisted the safety of the children wasn't compromised.
