Terrifying CCTV footage shows the moment a sledgehammer-wielding gang try to smash their way into a Leicestershire flat - with the owner still inside.
The three men were caught on a high-quality camera repeatedly hitting the door of the flat in Tuckers Road, Loughborough.
Despite several attempts, the resident of the flat managed to keep the men out and they ran off empty handed.
The attack happened at around 7.25pm on December 21 last year. Witnesses or anyone with information are urged to call police on 101.
