4 cuts = 7.64 sec
At the beginning of the movie the British version cut out how the FBI-agent in disguise Malcolm Turner kicks one of the animal-fight-promoter's minions against the head.
2.00 sec

Shortly after that another kick from the agent against another crook is missing.
2.52 sec

Turner hitting his knee into an aggressor's face was cut out, too.
0.96 sec

Towards the end a head-but that the escaping bank-robber Lester Vesco receives was cut out, too.

After the headbutt, Malcolm kicks Lester in the face. Despite not being cut by the BBFC, Fox pre-cut it from the DVD before submission to the BBFC, replacing the kick to the face with a kick to the chest. Stranger still, the fullscreen VHS release contains the original kick to the face. (Thanks to Gavin Salkeld for this information).
