A masked hammer-wielding man was caught on camera smashing the windows of a Chatteris takeaway and coffee shop. 

In the 14-second video, which has been viewed by hundreds of people, he can be seen running up to the front of the building before repeatedly smashing the windows. 

The man then runs off towards the town centre.

Posting on their Facebook page, Bridge House - who also uploaded the CCTV footage to TikTok - said it was the third time the takeaway has been attacked.
