Local Khun Itiphat said: “I could hear them squealing.

“Then they ran on to the road and began wrestling.”

One monkey troop lives in a nearby ruined temple, the other in an abandoned cinema in Lopburi, Thailand.

Vet Supakarn Kaewchot said: “They are so used to having tourists feed them.

“With tourists gone, they’ve more aggressive.

Locals think the monkeys are lucky and hold a festival for them annually.

Officials have also tried to control the number of monkeys by rolling out mass sterilisation programmes.
