Both children and parents were left in TEARS after watching Little Mix perform at a Newmarkets Nights event.

Instead of great memories of Jesy Nelson, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall singing "Touch" to chat to their friends in the school playground — the youngsters were left with bruises, cuts and were traumatized after unruly crowd members were pushing people.

Mother Chloe Price who attended the concert posted a photo of her eight-year-old daughter with bruises to Facebook, slamming the event.

She wrote: "Never been so absolutely disgusted in my life. We have taken my two young daughters and nephew to see Little Mix today, to an apparent FAMILY event."

"After trying to get through the floods of drunken crowds to get to the concert, it was something completely different. It was no environment for young children. My children have been left absolutely traumatized and covered in bruises."

Tina Bronstein told the Cambridge News: "It was an absolutely horrendous event. My daughter and my friend's daughter were squashed and traumatized beyond belief. I got a neck and shoulder injury."

"People were fighting, the police were doing their best — but to cut a long story short, there were so many drunken adults, children pushed around, and we had to leave 40 minutes before the concert finished. I cannot explain how awful it was, as a mother to put my child in my chest like a koala bear, trying to save and protect her and us getting squashed by the railings where the sound and lighting was," she continued.

"My daughter and her friend could barely take a breath. And I've got to say, it was a fantastic event at first — we watched some racing, got some fish and chips and then as it got dark it all unfolded like a nightmare from hell."

Another parent told The Mirror, "I'm disgusted by how it was last night. My little girl got hit on the head by a flying bottle. I had to fight my way out as she was bleeding and screaming. I'm seeking legal action."

Amy Starkey, managing director of Newmarket Racecourse, told the News: "The team and I remain absolutely committed to ensuring that anybody that comes to enjoy racing and or music has a good experience and if for whatever reason that experience isn't in line with their expectation then I apologize."

Little Mix have yet to respond.
