Birmingham Christmas shoppers narrowly avoid being ploughed down by Audi – WATCH

CCTV footage has been released showing the shocking moment when a car narrowly missed crashing into pedestrians on the pavement. Terrified Christmas shoppers ran for their lives as the dark Audi Q7 mounted the pavement. Men in black hoodies with their faces covered and bats in hand could also be seen in pursuit of the car.

In the video, the Audi can be seen hitting clothes rails outside a store.

The event took place on Alum Rock Road in Birmingham last Sunday.

The people on the pavement quickly move out of the way, some running into the nearest shop.

A young girl, seen in a white coat, was lucky to survive after narrowly missing being hit by the vehicle, thanks to her quick-reacting mum who plucked her to safety.

Surveillance footage shows at least two men, whose heads are hidden by hoods, carrying baseball bats towards the crashed car.

As they approach it, a man jumps out from the passenger side and dashes away.

After the bat-wielding men then vanished from the scene, stunned shoppers gathered around the damaged rails.

It’s believed that police were called after the December 22 incident.

An Alum Rock Community Forum spokesman slammed the threatening actions as “reckless”.

He said: “It’s shocking.

“This happened in the heart of the Alum Rock Road, with people doing their Christmas shopping, and taking advantage of the sales.”

He added: ”They put women and children’s lives at risk.

“From the video, we can see people parading around with three-foot-long bats again – with no regard for the law.”

Alum Rock, known locally as ‘The Rock’, is an inner-city suburb of Birmingham, roughly two miles from the city centre.

It is known as a crime hot spot, “marred by shootings and gangland turf war”, according to Birmingham Live.

It is also notorious for numerous arrests for terror-related offences.
