London pub-goers were left shocked after a group of people stormed in to allegedly try to rob them while they were enjoying a drink.

Footage shows the gang trying to enter The Marquis Cornwallis pub in Russell Square in central London last Friday night.

Two people are holding baseball bats as the group invades the pub – but they are soon chased back out by angry customers.

The footage shows a busy pub with most seats taken up by people enjoying a drink to kick the weekend off.

The group storms in, leaving customers shocked and scared.

One person in the video can be heard shouting ‘he’s got a weapon!’ as the group moves in.

But then moments later the gang is filmed running back down the road away from the pub.

It’s believed one customer was hit on the head with one of the baseball bats before the group ran away, but this has not been confirmed by police.

After the video was shared on social media, people started commenting about feeling unsafe in London.

One person said: ‘Not safe anywhere’.

Another commented: ‘Getting worse and worse.’

Metro has contacted the Metropolitan Police for a comment.

Elsewhere in London a man recently jumped into an elderly woman’s car and drove off with her dog still inside.

Doorbell footage shows the thief getting out of a VW Golf and slowly walking over to the woman’s driveway in Bexleyheath, south London, on Wednesday morning.

He then leaps into action when he realises the door of the £35,000 car is ajar and reverses out of the driveway.
