This is the moment Hell’s Kitchen star chef James Petrie’s violinist wife hurls two bricks at her neighbours’ door in a row over parking.
Una Palliser-Petrie, a popular musician who has toured with Shakira and Take That, snapped after Jane and Antonios Foufas placed traffic bollards outside their home to stop motorists blocking their driveway.
In CCTV footage obtained exclusively by MailOnline, Ms Palliser-Petrie removes the cones – then throws two bricks that had been weighing them down over the couple’s front wall.
One of the bricks bounces off the door, leaving a scuff mark.
The Irish musician then calmly walks off with her young daughter following the incident last Sunday.

Police say they are now investigating and are due to speak to both parties involved.
Mrs Foufas, 70, an actress who has appeared in Mamma Mia! and her 71-year-old café-owner husband, who famously sold former Labour leader Ed Miliband the bacon sandwich he was photographed struggling to eat, are moving to a new house in St Albans, Hertfordshire.
They are in the process of renovating the property and are currently having the garden re-landscaped but workmen have complained about neighbours parking their cars across the driveway and blocking their access.
The couple’s son, talkRADIO host Cristo Foufas, who is looking after the home until they move in, placed the bollards outside their drive three weeks ago.
However it angered neighbours who compete for space to park their cars along the tightly-packed road, where houses sell for between £600,000 and £800,000.
Mrs Foufas, told MailOnline: ‘This whole affair has really upset me and now I’m not sure I want to even live there.
‘We are downsizing and have been refurbishing this house for about a year.
‘We’re currently doing the garden which involves landscaping and laying a new driveway.

Mrs Palliser-Petrie, a mother-of-one, from Ireland, was unavailable for comment when approach by MailOnline

Mrs Foufas’ son Cristo, talkRADIO host (pictured with his mother) is looking after his parents’ home until they move in but said that the animosity felt towards them over the building work means they are now unsure that they want to live there
‘Parking is a problem on the road and so other neighbours are constantly parking across our driveway meaning the builders can never get their truck on the driveway- despite us leaving polite notes asking them not to.
‘So in order to keep the driveway clear we put temporary plastic bollards across the width of the white line in front of the drive to keep people from parking across it when it wasn’t in use.
‘This was to ensure that when the builders returned in the morning, they could actually use the driveway they’re working on. The bollards were weighted down with bricks and were only a temporary measure until we move in full time.
‘We have a neighbour two doors up by the name of Una Palliser-Petrie, who is married to the Michelin starred chef James Petrie and is a very respected musician.
‘On Sunday, so frustrated was Una that these bollards were in place, she picked them both up and chucked them into my front garden.
‘She then, with her toddler daughter next to her, picked up the bricks that held them in place, and threw them at my house. One of them actually hit the front door.
‘At no point did she try to speak to us about it and explain her frustration that the bollards were in place, this was her first course of action!’
Mr Foufas said he had been inside his parents’ property when he heard a thud at the front door just after 1pm on Sunday afternoon.
He went outside and saw the bollards placed back over the wall and two bricks on the floor so photographed them but took no further action.
Later in the evening police officers visited the home acting on a complaint from a neighbour about the bollards being put back up.
He was made to remove them but after the officers had left, he reviewed the footage from a camera his parents had set up above the front door, which film Mrs Palliser-Petrie moving the bollards and throwing two bricks towards the property.
Mr Foufas said he and his mother confronted her neighbour the next day but claimed she refused to own up.
He added: ‘She was getting into a cab and we asked her why she had thrown bricks at our house.
‘She pretended not to have heard me so I went a little closer and asked again, calmly because she was with her daughter.
‘But all I got was a barrage of abuse from her, before she then told me and my mum that ‘the whole street hates you’.
‘My mother is now devastated that this is the welcome she’s getting as a pensioner moving into her new house.’
Mrs Palliser-Petrie was unavailable for comment.
