A group of teenagers were filmed shoving a lit firework through a North London woman’s letterbox, which then went off in her hallway.
Dance instructor Rachel Lake posted door cam footage to Twitter of the incident, which took place at 7.50pm on Sunday (October 31).
The footage shows the gang of young people inserting the firework through the letterbox before running away from the address on Wrentham Avenue, after which smoke can be seen rising from inside the door, followed by a loud bang and a flash.

“This boy was with a large group of kids aged around 15-17 years in Wrentham Avenue this evening when he lit a firework and put it through my front door.
“It went off in the hallway.”
