In a video realised by London police, a 23-year-old man can be seen running for his life in broad daylight as a gang of five chase him down and pile on after he is dragged to the ground.

Two of the gang are spotted carrying large knives and can be seen swinging them at the downed victim.

Four of the attackers are then later spotted on another camera getting into a lift and re-enacting the fight as they waited for the doors to open.

Boasting about the assault, one of the men continually makes a downward stabbing gesture as the others laugh on.

Independent.ie understands that the victim was taken to south London hospital, where he was treated for head and leg wounds.
