CCTV footage of an apparent attempt steal motorbikes on a residential street in Chiswick has been posted on YouTube by BBC TV presenter Jeremy Vine.

The film shows four men on two motorbikes pull up and looking at motorbikes parked by the road. One man in hi-viz clothing investigates one side of the street whilst two accomplices pull the cover from bikes on the other side.

In the event they appear not to have been interested in the bikes they found or deterred by security measures and drive away after about a minute.

Mr Vine said that film was taken from a house ten doors down the road from where he lives. He described it on Twitter as the 'most brazen attempt to steal motorbikes I have ever seen.'

The incident is believed to have occurred at around 5pm in the morning.
