Gang of eight masked men armed with machetes storm house leaving two injured

A gang of eight masked thugs are at large after they wielded machetes and raided a family's house.

Cops released new pictures and put out a call for any information from the public about the aggravated burglary on April 1, which left two injured.

The Metropolitan Police also connected the raid with a similar attack on a nightclub in Clacton, Essex the same night.

Black and white pics show the four shortly before the 5am attack on the home in Walthamstow, northeast London.

Pictures of four of the men were handed out by the Met in the hope they will be recognised.

The Met's burglary and robbery team are hoping members of the public can help bring them in.

Police are so confident the two raids are linked that the Met squad is investigating both events, rather than simply working with Essex Police to find the perpetrators.

The eight men who stormed the Walthamstow home threatened the four people inside with violence.

Two were injured and hospitalised but later released with minor injuries, according to the Met.

PC David Havard said: "This was a terrifying experience for the family involved and we are committed to tracking down those who carried out this awful crime.

"As part of our enquiries, we can now share images of three men who we want to speak to.
