Armed robbers including one posing as a delivery driver ransacked a family’s home to steal designer watches and jewellery in east London.

CCTV captures the first suspect - dressed in an orange high-vis jacket and wearing a face mask – knocking on the front door stating he has a parcel.

Once the resident opened the door, four other men wielding knives run down Beresford Road, Walthamstow.

Two are seen leaping over the front garden’s metal railing before all five force their way into the house at 2.30pm on Monday.

The suspects then enter several rooms searching for valuables.

They run off with a haul containing jewellery, phones, passports, iPads, a designer handbag, ear pods, ID cards and designer watches.

Police today released security camera footage of the raid and appealed for help to identify the men.
