Shocking footage has gone viral on social media, appearing to show a scuffle at a HSBC cash point in East Ham in the London Borough of Newham.
The footage shows two people scuffling at the cash point as a number of members of the public watch on, with some filming the incident on their mobile phones while others ask why nobody is intervening.
“On the evening of Monday, 27 September police were made aware of a video on social media appearing to show a robbery at a cashpoint in East Ham” said a spokesman for the Metropolitan Police.
“Enquiries were carried out and it does not appear the initial incident had been reported to officers.
“We have made contact with the person who uploaded the video and are waiting for them to provide further details.”
