Handbags worth tens of thousands of pounds have been stolen during a smash and grab at a fashion boutique in west London early this morning.

A gang on two mopeds targeted a branch of Chanel on Brompton Road.

Witnesses say four masked men used heavy tools to smash down the glass door before stealing luxury handbags.

It's the latest in a series of smash-and-grab attacks on jewellers and other luxury goods stores in the capital.
