CHILLING footage has emerged appearing to show manhunt suspect Kyle Clifford striding away from the triple murder scene with a THREE FOOT crossbow.

The clip shows a man carrying the “huge” object under his right arm under a sheet as he strides from an alleyway leading to the property where three women were killed.

Dressed all in black he was also filmed carrying a bag cops fear could be a cache of Clifford's further weapons - before climbing into a black Seat.

The same car is understood to have been found abandoned earlier today - leading cops to Enfield where armed officers were searching for the suspect.

A source said: “You can see clearly from the outline of what is under the sheet that it is in the shape of a crossbow - but it’s massive.

“When we first heard the weapon was involved no-one thought it might be that big - it makes you wonder where he got it from.“The way he is walking is with clear intent - he is moving to get to his car as fast as he can while still walking.

"He was clearly carrying plenty of equipment but if you were on the street you would never assume it was a deadly weapon."

A full-size crossbow could shoot bolts accurately up to 250ft - raising the terrifying prospect victims may not even see their shooter before being hit.

In the clip - the man believed to be Kyle Clifford - climbs into the black car and waits for 18 seconds before driving away West-bound on Bushey Grove Road towards.

The road is directly connected to the murder scene on Ashlyn Close by a pedestrian footpath.

The black Seat from the footage is believed to form  part of the ongoing investigation.

Hertfordshire Police said: "A vehicle has been located and is being investigated."

A spokeswoman added: "We cannot comment any further at this time."

The three women are the wife and two daughters of BBC Five Live racing commentator John Hunt, the broadcaster confirmed this afternoon.

They have been identified as Hunt's 61-year-old wife Carol and their daughter Hannah and Louise.

It said John, who has worked for the station for the past two decades, had been working for the Beeb on Tuesday.

MailOnline reports Clifford was the ex-boyfriend of one of Hunt's daughters.

Dramatic footage obtained exclusively by The Sun this afternoon showed cops storming a home in the hunt for the suspect.

Two helicopters were spotted circling the Hilly Fields area of Enfield, North London, as armed police stormed a home.

One officer can be heard screaming: “Armed Police, come to the door and raise your hands” as cops barrage through the front of the property.

It is unclear who or what cops discovered in the home but at least two officers are still at the scene of the raid.

A source said: “It’s a really heavy response — and shocking for everyone to see.

“They charged in and spent quite a while in the home. It didn’t seem like anyone was there”.

In a press conference at 12.30noon Hertfordshire Police said they were still hunting for the suspect.

The force confirmed Clifford, who is from Enfield in North London, may still be armed and urged anyone who sees him to call 999 immediately.

They also said it is believed he may be in possession of a crossbow and may have used other weapons in the "targeted" attack.

Appealing directly to Clifford today, Detective Superintendent Rob Hall said: "Kyle, if you are seeing or hearing this please make contact with police via 999."

Herts Police have told anyone who was in Ashlyn Close from lunchtime yesterday to come forward to call 101 quoting Op Infauna.

DSI Rob Hall said: “This is an incredibly difficult incident for the victims’ family and we would ask that their privacy is respected as they come to terms with what has happened.

“Whilst we are still in the early stages of this investigation, we are actively seeking Kyle Clifford who we believe could be in the areas of Hertfordshire or North London.

“Given the serious nature of the incident, I would ask anyone who knows where he is to contact police immediately.

"If you believe you see him, please do not approach him and dial 999 straight away. He may still be in possession of a weapon."

It comes after horrified neighbours told of hearing screams last night.

Francis Turner told The Sun: "My husband and I were watching the football when we heard sirens and shouting. There were around 30 policemen outside.

“There were armed police. They came and knocked on our door and told us to stay inside and keep our doors shut.

"My heart goes out to them. I feel very sad for the family, my heart goes out to them.”

One neighbour, who didn't want to be named, said they heard screaming before "at least 16 police cars" swooped on the scene.

They added: "It was between 6.30pm and 7pm last night and it literally just sounded like kids, somebody, screaming, and then it was more shrill and I was like, ‘that’s definitely a woman screaming’, and within 15 minutes, it was absolute chaos.“We had armed police running down, screaming ‘stay in your house’…. they shut us off and basically put us into lockdown.”

Another local Dereck Turner, who took a photo of armed cops outside, said: "It’s a very quiet and peaceful area, it’s close to everything, when a house comes up it’s gone.”
