Armed gang target Wetherby High Street jewellers

An armed gang of masked raiders fled with goods after targeting a jewellery shop in a West Yorkshire market town.

Police said the gang of three threatened staff at Caines Jewellers on Wetherby High Street on Friday.

The thieves brandished a gun and hammers as they took an unspecified quantity of stock from the shop.

A Subaru Impreza used by the thieves was found abandoned on Walton Road and they are thought to have used a BMW one series to leave the area.
