Four charged over jewellers raid bid in Northampton

Four men have been charged with robbery and vehicle offences after an incident in Northampton in which a woman intervened in a jewellers' shop raid.

The men, aged 18, 22, 25 and 39, from London, are due to appear before Northampton Magistrates Court later.

The robbery at Michael Jones Jewellers - and the woman "handbagging" the alleged raiders - was caught on camera.

Police said six offenders on three motorbikes tried to smash the shop windows with sledgehammers on Monday.

Officers are still looking for two suspects and are appealing for the public's help in tracing them.
