Police have asked for help in identifying two youths involved in a serious assault on a family of British tourists.

British family beaten up in ThailandA video clip from CCTV from a camera at the entrance to Soi Bintabaht in front of Wat Hua Hin captures a serious argument between a British tourist family of three people – a mum, dad and their child – who were in the area to celebrate Songkran on the evening of April 13th.

The family encounter a group of youths and an argument develops into a serious assault where the three foreigners are unable to defend themselves and were grievously injured.

In the clip, the family can be seen getting into an argument with the attackers. A man appears to strike the foreign woman before other, presumably Thai men, start attacking the two other foreign men. All three foreigners are knocked to the floor.

The attack only stops when the three foreigners are unconscious but not before one Thai man lands a brutal volley to the face of the woman as she tries to get up in what is a truly shocking display of violence.

Hua Hin police are sharing the video footage to help arrest those responsible.

Police have two of the attackers in custody and are trying to find two more.

They appeal for help to find those responsible for the violence against the unnamed British family and the damage it has done to local tourism.

Anyone one who has information or who may have witnessed the incident is urged to contact officers at Hua Hin police station.
