Dramatic footage shows the moment police used a chainsaw to force their way into a home in a search for drugs and weapons.
Woodchips flew through the air as officers cut their way into the property during a raid in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, on Thursday morning.
Intelligence informed them weapons and drugs were stashed at the address and they executed a warrant to search the property.
The clip shows the Tactical Support Team and neighbourhood officers using the power tool to slice open the door.
Following search, they seized a small amount of white powder believed to be the Class B drug monkey dust, the Stoke Sentinel reports.
