The Rolex store in Knightsbridge has been targeted by a gang riding mopeds in a smash-and-grab raid.

Four mopeds carrying seven people armed with axes and sledgehammers tried to smash the front window of the shop at about 10:30 BST, police said.

When the masked gang could not gain entry they forced the door open with a motorbike and stole a number of watches.

No arrests have been made and officers are appealing for witnesses.
