In a video clip stretching 180 seconds, the incident begins when four suspects - three wearing helmets and one a mask - are seen pulling up to the house before two of them run up to the driveway.

At around 45 seconds, a light comes on from the house, illuminating the gang.

One gang member can be seen aggressively gesturing towards the house, as if in a bid to warn off the occupants.

The gang continues forcing open the garage door and at around 90 seconds, they are seen removing the garage door and pulling it off its hinges.

As they aim to remove the motorbike, another gang member, wearing a helmet, can be seen pointing towards the house before using a tool, which appears to be a pipe wrench, to smash the windows of two cars parked on the drive way.

The gang then remove the motorbike from the garage, and while pushing it down the driveway, scrape against one of the parked cars on the driveway - which now has the garage door lying on it - and push the bike onto the road.

Two suspects are then seen escaping on a motorbike and another on a moped while a fourth gang member pushes away the stolen racing motorbike.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police on 101.
