This is the astonishing moment a hero in a Range Rover attempts to block bungling thieves as they flee from his neighbour’s drive in a stolen car.
The clip, believed to have been filmed in the Holbrooks area of Coventry, captures the motorist as he parks his vehicle behind the stolen car.
He then manoeuvres his vehicle to block them as they try to flee – before chasing after the burglars when they eventually escape.

The footage begins as the thieves, all dressed in black, pull up to the street in a silver Peugeot.
They then approach a property with a white car in front of it and disappear out of view.
But as they are inside the house, a neighbour across the street returns home in his Range Rover and starts to unpack his vehicle.
The thugs then emerge from the property and split into pairs, with two of them racing off in the Peugeot and the others attempting to steal the targeted white car.

As soon as he spots the gang, the neighbour jumps back into his Range Rover and tries to block the thieves in the driveway.
They try to wriggle free using manoeuvres, but eventually resort to bashing into the side of the Range Rover and driving through a fence to get away.
Frantic neighbours look on as the incident unfolds, with one trying to gain entry into the car as it goes through the fence.
The Range Rover driver then continues to follow the thieves down the street as they flee.

The clip was posted to social media yesterday but it is believed to have been filmed in October last year.
Craig Foster said: ‘Fair play to the person in the Range Rover. Better than standing there watching them.’
Jake Staley commented: ‘Well done to that guy, not many people would sacrifice their hard earned possessions to try and save someone else’s!’
Wayne Gillions said: ‘Fair play to him. I’d love to smash their thieving heads in.’
West Midlands Police said it could not comment on the clip as a specific address is unclear.
