French police are investigating a jewellery robbery in Paris - the latest in a series of high-profile thefts in France..

In the early hours of Monday, thieves rammed a 4x4 vehicle through the windows of an upmarket jewellery store near the prestigious Place Vendome.

They made off with 2m euros (£1.7m; $2.6m) in gems and watches.

In July, a masked jewel thief stole £88m worth of precious stones from the Carlton Hotel in Cannes.
