A GANG of masked men cut down a CCTV mast in London’s East End in the middle of the night.
A neighbour woken by the sound of an angle grinder at 3am looked out of his window and saw the eight men in ski masks in Myrdle Street, Whitechapel, on the corner by Commercial Road cutting through the 15ft pole.
“I heard the sound of a loud angle grinder,” the neighbour told the East London Advertiser.
“The men all had ski masks on and obviously didn’t want to be identified.

“This is a notorious spot and there have been several street arrests where men have been caught passing drugs.”
Police turned up a few minutes later after a 999 call following the incident last Monday. But the men were gone—leaving the camera mast across the pavement.
