Speaking about the footage, Councillor Dhillon said: “Something has to be done before there is a death.

“The local police do not have the capacity or resource to deal with such an incident.

“I met with the manager of Asda in Hayes, and I was assured that they want to cooperate and help tackle the antisocial behaviour.

"I still haven't yet heard from the police on why they couldn't attend but I will continue to push the issue until we get answers."

The Mirror Online has approached the Metropolitan Police for a comment.
