A BRAVE lorry driver single-handedly stopped a group of hammer-wielding moped thieves with his vehicle.
Astonishing footage shows the moment the driver of a Brakes Food lorry blocked the thugs trying to free a chained moped in West London on Friday.
A horrified onlooker began recording the thieves from the moment they positioned themselves close to the parked mopeds.
One gets off a bike, preparing to break the moped free, while others remain ready to flee.
But seconds later the lorry driver approaches the group, and wedges his vehicle between the chained moped and the thieve.
Annoyed at the hero driver, one thug throws a tantrum on the pavement, struggling to find another way to rob the parked vehicle.
The crook continues to pace up and down the pavement, signalling to his accomplices to find another way.
But since the driver showed no signs of moving, they gave up and fled the scene.
Amazed at the driver's bravery, one social media user said: Hope the lorry driver @Brakes_Food gets rewarded for this. Too man."
Another added: "Top man well done."
