This is the moment a man smashes a cricket bat into the side of a van in an apparent act of road rage.
Footage of the incident, which is believed to have taken place in Southall, west London, shows a silver people carrier and silver van stopped at a junction.
In the video, which is taken from another vehicle in the road, a man can be seen reaching into the boot of the car and pulling out a cricket bat.
Seeing what is about to happen, the driver of the Citroën van starts its engine and begins to pull away.
The man then charges at the moving vehicle, before raising the bat above his head and hitting the side of the moving vehicle.

Video of the confrontation was shared online on Friday, September 29, although the exact location where it took place is unknown.
One person said: ‘If that was my van he hit I would have stopped and got out!!’
Another joked ‘that’s LBW’, a reference to one of the ways a batter can be dismissed in cricket.

Peter Abbott started shouting at the woman, branding her ‘f***ing bloody annoying’ and a ‘f***ing s**g’ during a confrontation on August 25 at a Tesco petrol station.
The 59-year-old also banged on her windscreen and snarled at the woman as he shouted: ‘Do you see me you f***ing tart?’
When he was confronted by reporters from The Sun outside his luxury apartment block in Bournemouth he was similarly foul-mouthed, shouting at them to ‘f*** off’.
He shouted: ‘Just stay away from me. Get away from me.’
He then allegedly confronted the female reporter as she got in her car to leave, standing up against the window and telling her to ‘f*** off’.
