Police Investigate Raid On City Jewellers

Almost a million pounds worth of jewellery's been stolen in an armed raid in the City.

Two robbers burst into Haynes Jewellers near Cornhill early on Tuesday morning and took diamonds and jewellery from the safe.

Police say they could try to pass the items on as expensive Valentine's presents.

They disguised themselves as road workers before holding the owner at knifepoint, also using a CS type spray in his face.

Three stolen bracelets and rings are worth around twenty-thousand pounds each.
