He walks across the front of the house, on The Fairway, and, using a hammer, repeatedly smashes in the windows. 

The sound of breaking glass can be clearly heard and there are muffled voices in the background. 

The man then runs to his bicycle leaning against a gatepost in the back of the shot.

He quickly cycles away, reportedly riding towards the A10.
