Travellers were filmed brandishing guns and threatening to murder rival family members in a revenge attack for an armed raid on one of their sites. Chilling footage shows three men covering their faces with masks as they appear to hold up rifles while boasting they had enough bullets to "put two in each of ye". The thugs then go on to warn the rival family they are "coming" for their women and children. They then dared the travellers to visit Stoke-on-Trent where they would be waiting to "blow out their brains". The sickening threat came after dozens of men allegedly smashed their way into the traveller site armed with axes, bats and spades and threatened their family. Shocking footage of the raid was posted on Facebook and has been viewed more than 150,000 times. It shows dozens of men swarming around the gated compound - said to be in the West Midlands - shouting: "Where's Trevor?" A lone shirtless man comes out of the house with two Alsatian dogs and holds up his arms appealing for calm but the masked youths start jumping over the gate. One yob uses an axe to smash open a metal grill and the mob starts pouring into the site, surrounding the man. He says Trevor is not there and claims he does not have a phone number for him, despite repeated threats. A stocky bearded man then turns to the camera with a message for Trevor, and shouts: "I'm ready to fight, come here now." Another man says: "Trevor, come here now and we'll have a western. Ya dirty sheepdog, ya." The men did not physically attack anyone in the footage but in a later video they warned they were coming back for Trevor and "anyone that backs you". In a previous post they said they were in Birmingham and publicly challenged him to a one-on-one fight. They claimed they attacked the site because he did not show up for the scrap. But three men - claiming to be those targeted in the raid - posted a reply on Facebook this morning which has been viewed more than 175,000 times. Sat on a sofa wearing hoodies and balaclavas, they pose with what they claim are lethal firearms and live ammunition. A man points the barrel of his weapon at the camera and claims it is a "Winchester 47" rifle capable of holding up to 25 rounds.
