The two males – one wearing a blue Tesco jacket and a white hoodie and the other in a black puffer jacket and a Nike hoodie – forced the woman into the kitchen.

She was holding her child while one of them pointed a knife at her neck and demanded money.

They fled the scene shortly after 1.24pm and nothing is believed to have been taken.

There were also no reports of injuries.

Metropolitan Police have now shared the clip onto social media as detectives from the South West Command Unit purpsue a number of enquiries.

Detective Sergeant Cerith Jones, investigating, said: "The community will be appalled by this awful incident and I know many people will want to reach out and help us identify them.

"I urge local people to please check your doorbell and dash cam footage for any material that could assist us. If you were in the vicinity and saw two men acting suspiciously, or running away, we want to hear from you.

"The young woman was terrified and it is imperative that we catch the men responsible."

Police will be conducting extra patrols in the area over the coming days to help reassure local people.
