Thank you for your question.
Yes, you probably do have a case here and video evidence would be useful for any court case. I say probably because your lease would have to be looked at for its terms. However, subject to the specific conditions of the lease it is implicit that you are entitled to peaceful enjoyment of your premises so as to carry out your business. If that is no longer the case then a right of action can follow.
Happy to discuss further.
I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
