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.
