The scene of a smash and grab robbery in Selfridges, Watches worth nearly £1.5m were stolen in the raid

Four men have been charged in connection with a smash-and-grab raid at London's Selfridges store.

Jewellery including watches worth about £1.5m were taken during the raid, which took place in June.

The men were arrested when police raided eight addresses in Islington, north London, and Hackney in east London.

Two of the men were also charged over a robbery at a jewellery store in Windsor in Berkshire, in April.

Ritchie Graham, 23, from Islington, and Ramela Gordon, 18, from Stoke Newington, have been charged over the Selfridges robbery as well as the raid at the Robert Gatward Jewellers in Windsor.

Kris Monaghan, 24, from Islington, and Leon Wright, 25, from Finsbury Park, were charged with conspiracy to commit robbery at Selfridges.

A fifth man, Andre Murrian, 19, from Stamford Hill, was charged over the raid at the jewellers in Windsor.

They have all been remanded in custody to appear at Wimbledon Magistrates' Court on Wednesday.

Two other men have already been jailed for the Selfridges robbery.
