The trouble erupted at around 11pm on Tuesday and witnesses described seeing the driver Mitsubishi Shogun 4x4, believed to be stolen, ramming into several cars.

Video footage has emerged of the driver repeatedly smashing into one car three times.

One resident tried to give chase in his dressing gown and flip-flops but could not catch the driver who fled after damaging up to 10 cars, writing off at least three.

Police have since arrested three men, aged 28, 32, and 39 in connection with the incident which is thought to be related to a family dispute.

A relative of the man taken to hospital claimed a "mob" of about 20 men had burst into his family's home, striking his 68-year-old mother, hurting his nephew and holding his brother at gunpoint.

The man, who does not wish to be named, said: "They hit my mum, hurt my nephew and had a gun at my brother.

"I think they hit him with it {the gun}. He's in hospital with head injuries.

"I don't know what happened next. I don't know if they left my brother in the house or dragged him out."

He claimed the family fall-out stemmed from 2016 and that in December last year, some of his relatives' cars were soaked in acid.

Meanwhile, residents in Marshfields, West Yorks., were today counting up the cost of the late-night rampage.

Dad Sajad Ahmed, 52, said he watched in horror as his pride and joy Audi TT was hit at least three times by the Shogun that had sounded like "a big truck".

He said: "It was my pride and joy. I screamed to my wife 'he's killing my car'.

"It hurt so much watching it happen, but my wife's car was right next to it and she's just passed her test. I was thinking 'please don't hit hers'.

"Thankfully that was when he finally stopped, got out of the car, looked around and ran off.

"One of our neighbours tried to give chase, just in his dressing gown and his flip flops but didn't get very far.

"He gave it a go though - he doesn't even have a car but still tried to help.

"There were about 30 people crowding out on the street after it happened. People just couldn't believe it. The damage will run into the thousands.

"People were taking photos and filming it. It was just like a movie when it was happening."

One woman, who did not want to be named, "He was just hitting every single car, ramming them backwards and forwards like skittles.

"There are about ten cars damaged. Our neighbour is in tears. The police told us the Mitsubishi was stolen."

A West Yorkshire Police spokesman said: "Two men have been arrested following disorder in the Marshfields area of Bradford last night.

"The men aged 38 and 29 were arrested following enquiries into the incident which police were called to at around 11.04pm when reports of a car being burnt out in Marsh Street were received.

"Officers attended and found damage had been caused to several vehicles.

"A 32-year-old man was taken to hospital where he was treated for a head injury and two other people were treated for minor injuries.

"Enquiries are at an early stage and are continuing today, but the incident is believed to be related to a family dispute.

"Anyone who can assist with information is asked to contact Bradford District CID on 101, quoting log 1851 of 9 January."
