The workers stack the bricks and sweep away debris before leaving the area without informing homeowner Debs Eccott of the damage.

She said: "It's all been repaired now with no fuss which is good.

"I was just shocked as to how they thought they could get away with it – good job I've got cameras."

Police were contacted about the incident which happened around 1pm on Tuesday.

Medway Norse chairman Cllr Rupert Turpin said: "The incident is being investigated and the householder has been contacted.
