Sorry, this video isn’t available any more.

Shocking footage shows the moment a group of men attempted to steal a delivery rider’s bike.

The video appears to have been filmed in Canary Wharf, east London, and was posted to Twitter yesterday.

It shows a gang of around five men dressed in black who are involved in a fight with several Deliveroo riders.

The delivery riders are holding their bicycles and are easily identifiable by the bright turquoise jackets and bags they are wearing.

It is unclear how the physical violence began as the video was recorded after it started, but as the 40-second clip continues more and more people appear to become involved in the conflict.

One rider, who was wearing a blue jacket as well as another orange Just Eat delivery backpack, then turned his back and attempted to get his bike and leave the situation.

But a member of the gang dressed in black stopped him from leaving by attempting to snatch the delivery rider’s bike away from him.

The rider clung on to the bike until another member of the gang pushed the man trying to steal it away.

The same gang member, who was wearing a grey hoodie and black coat, was also seen attempting to separate the fighting people in the video.

A Deliveroo spokesperson said: ‘We are extremely concerned by this incident and strongly condemn all forms of violence towards riders.

‘There is no place for this, especially when riders are carrying out a vital role in their communities.

‘We are currently investigating this as a matter of urgency. The safety and well-being of our riders is an absolute priority.’

Metro has also contacted the Metropolitan Police for more information.

Elsewhere in London recently, a shameless Deliveroo customer was branded ‘heartless’ after they stepped over a driver who collapsed on the street while bringing them food.
