A group of would-be burglars have been caught on camera trying to smash down a woman’s front door after following her to her home in Slough
In the video, three hooded men wearing balaclavas are seen running towards the front door of the property.
It is believed the gang had spotted the female homeowner walking down the street and decided to follow her, but she quickly noticed them and had run for safety.
Seconds before they reach the door, the click of what sounds like a lock turning can be heard as the woman tries to stop them from breaking in.
The men, all with their faces obscured, take turns kicking and ramming the door.
One of them is seen carrying a long black tool, but he does not use the object in their efforts to force entry.
