Medivet Fortis Green, in Midhurst Avenue, was broken into shortly before 4am and an eyewitness report claimed "four or five police cars", "two or three police vans" and a sniffer dog were deployed.

After police arrested one of the suspects in a resident's garden in Westside flats, he was handcuffed and escorted out of the building.

Charlie Sparks, 25, and Rhys Vieira, 43, both of Colney Hatch Lane, Barnet, appeared at Highbury Corner Magistrates' Court on Saturday charged with burglary.

A Medivet spokesperson said: "Our Fortis Green practice was recently broken into and we are currently cooperating with the police investigation.

"We want to thank our clients for their patience and understanding during the disruption following the burglary, in which a fair amount of damage was caused."
