Four teenagers have been sentenced after admitting their role in a raid on a central London jewellery store.

The teenagers rode to H Stain Ltd in Victoria Street on motorbikes on 11 March and used axes and hammers to gain entry, the Metropolitan Police said.

At Kingston Crown Court, Kaneen Gopaul, 18, of St Mary's Path, Islington, pleaded guilty to robbery and handling stolen goods.

He was sentenced to three years and eight months.

The three other teenagers, who cannot be named for legal reasons as they were 17 at the time of the crime, pleaded guilty to a combination of the same charges.

They were given sentences of between three years and eight months and four years.
