This is the shocking moment a gang of masked thieves armed with golf clubs attempt to steal a car in front of security guards.
Footage, captured yesterday at the Royal Mail Distribution Centre on Riversdale Road, in Atherstone, North Warwickshire, shows the thugs emerge from a dark blue Vauxhall and attempt to steal a lime green Ford Focus in the car park at 11.20am.
After failing to hotwire the parked car, the brazen thieves return to their getaway car and hastily drive away- all the while being filmed by members of staff in broad daylight.
