This is the shocking moment a man smashed in the windows of a home in London, thought to belong to an elderly couple who were asleep inside.

The incident, which was captured on CCTV, is said to have taken place on Sunday at 5:30am at a home in The Fairway, Enfield.

The footage, shared on Twitter, captures a man standing in front of a driveway, wearing a high vis jacket and face mask.

In the minute-long clip, he can be seen skirting the front of the house and smashing in the windows with a hammer as he goes. The glass can be heard shattering and littering the ground as the windows break.

According to the owner of the video, the homeowners are elderly and were left ‘shaken up’ by the incident.

After smashing the windows, the man sprints towards a bicycle left propped up against at the front of the driveway and cycles off.

At the moment, it is unclear what prompted the man to smash in the windows or whether any arrests have been made.

Police have been approached for further details.
