This is the astonishing moment a group of gardeners destroy a brand-new patio in a row with a customer who allegedly failed to pay £7,300 for the work.

Jack Pendergast filmed his colleagues smashing up paving slabs and pulling down a fence and can be heard angrily shouting about the dispute in the footage.
