Three members of a British family were punched and kicked unconscious in a Thai tourist resort.

The holidaymakers, including a Woman, were left needing hospital treatment after the vicious attack by a gang in Hua Hin during celebrations for the Thai New Year, it is understood.

Six people are said to have been arrested in connection with the incident in the popular coastal destination on April 13.

CCTV footage Released by local police to try and track down the suspects shows a brief argument before the attackers punch and kick the three victims.

Both men suffer blows to the face and body, and when the woman who was initially knocked flat out by a punch sits up, one attacker delivers a kick straight to her head.

The images on the right show all three being beaten unconscious and left on the pavement, as a large crowd watches the unfolding scene of assault on the busy street.

In the video a passer-by appears to come under attack from several men after trying to intervene to help. A contributor to the Hua Hin web forum said they had rushed to the help the family who they recognised from a nearby bar.

As revellers were leaving for the night groups of Thai Youths had gathered on the street. The witness wrote wrote: Within 20-30 metres of leaving the bar the Thais were punching the 65-year-old lady in the face! The elderly gentleman was down on the floor and their son was beaten very badly!

At this point I caught up to the scene and pushed one of the youths away from the woman. I got severely punched and kicked for my troubles, but felt the need to protect this frail lady.

The three of them are still hospitalised and I will need cosmetic dental work done.

According to the account, gangs of Thai youths were priming themselves to start punching Westerners’ in the area before the attack.

Not one character (other than myself) got here to aid those antique folks and they ended up laid in the road bleeding, the witness introduced.

The Songkran New yr celebrations are also referred to as the Water pageant, whilst Thai families splash water on every other as a part of a religious ritual of renewal.

The British Embassy released its Songkran secure campaign ahead of the festivities and advocated holidaymakers to participate whilst appreciating neighborhood customs and traditions.

Within the beyond travelers had been arrested for breaching decency legal guidelines by using taking part with out sporting T-shirts.

A spokeswoman for the overseas and Commonwealth workplace (FCO) said: Our group of workers had been in contact with the circle of relatives to offer assistance and will continue to be in touch with the local authorities.

The FCO released no records on the situation of the three united kingdom nationals following the attack.
