This report goes to show how quickly incidents can happen. Fortunately no one in the shop was harmed before the man left

CCTV footage has been released of a man vandalising a betting shop after he lost money in a gaming machine. An AlertSystems spokesperson responds to the report.

Police have released footage of a man caught on CCTV smashing up a betting shop, with the incident occurring after he lost £80 in a gaming machine. Staff at Coral bookmakers in Walthamstow spoke to the customer about his rude behaviour, before he became angry at the fact that they wouldn’t serve him a drink.

CCTV footage then shows the man attempting to smash the front door of the shop with his foot, before grabbing a chair and throwing it at the front window. It is believed the man had just lost £80 on one of the gaming machines in the shop. The suspect was wearing navy tracksuit trousers and a blue and grey hooded tracksuit top at the time of the incident. Police are hoping a member of the public will be able to come forward with details regarding the man’s whereabouts.
