After around 10 seconds, three masked thugs appear and demand to know where her car keys are as Mrs Quinn screams for help. 

One of the men goes into the house as the horn of Mrs Quinn’s white car blares loudly and one of the men shouts, ‘shut the f*** up, stop screaming.’ 

They can then be heard demanding to know where her handbag is before she replies, ‘I haven’t got one’. They then add ‘stay there’ as they continue holding her. 

The family’s dog then starts barking and one of the men screams, ‘where the f**k are the BMW keys?!’ and Mrs Quinn replies frantically, ‘they’re in the kitchen!’ 

One of the men then emerges with the BMW keys but another of the thugs screams, ‘I will kill that dog’.

He then repeats, ‘I will kill your dog, bruv’ and demands to know where the keys are once more, even as one of his accomplices is climbing into the BMW before being seen reversing it out of the driveway.

The man shouts once again and a frantic Mrs Quinn screams, ‘they’re on the side in the kitchen’ again before two banging sounds are heard. 

The clip then ends with the BMW reversing onto the road as two of the other thugs get into a waiting red Ford Fiesta.   

Posting the video on Facebook earlier today, Mr Quinn wrote: ‘These five brave scum bags with knives knocked my wife to the ground and held her down at knifepoint.
