The employees raced to the rescue after a woman was dragged to the ground by two men trying to steal her Mercedes A Class.

The incident happened at Merestones Petrol Station on Fox Hollies Road, Acocks Green in Birmingham on 6 January.

The footage shows the Mercedes parked at a petrol pump as the owner returns to her car.
