A FURIOUS driver went berserk and smashed up a parking warden’s car with a machete before trashing it with a forklift truck.

Shocked workers watched in horror as the “enormous bloke” pulled out a four-foot blade and started smashing the windows and wing mirrors of the Skoda.

The warden, working for private parking firm PPS, was seen “running away” as the attacker screamed: “Was it you?” before slashing at the car.

The unnamed thug then climbed into a forklift and picked up the motor before ramming it into a wall, smashing in the side panel.

A witness who filmed the carnage told The Sun: “I thought it was a terrorist attack at first.

“He was enormous and walking around pumping his chest out and showing off.

“He brings the machete down like he’s beheading someone.”

The witness – who was picking up helium canisters for party balloons  – saw the warden running for his life before going to investigate.

They added they thought they had stumbled across a film set as the “six foot two” machete man was screaming as he smashed all the lights, wing mirrors and windows of the grey Skoda Fabia.

In manic footage from the Wednesday horror, the bald attacker, wearing a blue shirt and his belly hanging out, is seen menacingly pacing towards the person videoing him.


Cops were called and armed police rushed to the scene at the Eley Industrial Estate in Edmonton, North London at around 11.30am.

One business owner who saw the mayhem unfold on Nobel Road and sheltered inside their office, said the attacker returned their forklift, before he calmly sat down to tuck into a hamburger.

Worried onlookers called 999 and a source told how “an armed police van, two unmarked cars, one cop car and about a dozen police” rushed to the scene.

The man was arrested by cops and reportedly remained calm throughout.

Officers stayed for four hours searching for the machete.

Business owners said they had “never seen the man before”.

But they described how the parking firm had caused misery for years by issuing £70 tickets to tradesmen dropping off and picking up deliveries.

One said: “They are ruthless, you have your car hanging over just a tiny bit into the road and you’ll get one.”

Another added how wardens “tend to be quite quick in giving them out”.

A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: “Police were called at 11:33hrs on Wednesday, 3 August to reports of a male damaging a vehicle with a machete and threatening the driver at Nobel Road, Enfield.

“A male, aged 50s, was arrested and charged the next day with possession of an offensive weapon in a public place, criminal damage, threatening behaviour with a knife/bladed article and threatening a witness.

“He was remanded to appear at Highbury Corner Magistrates Court on a date to be confirmed.
