Watch burglars buzzsaw their way into Stamford Hill silver shop making off with £60k worth of Hanukkah menorahs

This is the moment four burglars use a circular saw to break into a silver shop making off with £60,000 worth of jewellery and Hanukkah menorahs ahead of the Jewish holiday.

CCTV captures four balaclava-clad crooks getting out of an Audi in Stamford Hill and breaking open the steel shutters with a fired-up circular saw at 3.20am on Thursday.

The organised gang are seen on interior CCTV smashing the glass entrance of the silver shop and using head torches to spot the valuables in the pitch black shop.

The brazen thieves rush to fill large plastic bags with solid silver menorahs and other items before speed off along the pavement in a getaway car.
