There were terrifying scenes at London’s Brent Cross shopping centre yesterday as six men attempted an armed robbery on the Watchfinder store.

Video on The Sun’s website shows dramatic images of the robbers fleeing Watchfinder in a cloud of smoke from the store’s security system.

The footage shows a large axe and one of the gang’s three motorbikes lying on the floor near the shop’s entrance as the scenes unfolded at 7pm last night.
