Horrific footage has emerged of three masked men savagely attacking a driver with an axe in broad daylight.

The shocking video, thought to have been filmed in Birmingham, shows a masked man repeatedly punching the victim in a silver car.

The gang then crowd around the vehicle and one rushes to the back of the car to take an axe out of the boot before launching a barbaric assault.

The footage shows the thug hacking at the man with the axe nine times.

In the clip, which is described online as a ‘revenge axe attack’, the victim pleads with the gang to stop but to no avail.

Both both the Metropolitan Police and West Midlands Police said they had not received any calls relating to the video and they did not know where it had been filmed.
