Watches worth around £120,000 have been stolen by armed robbers from a jewellers in Nantwich.

Police are appealing for witnesses following the incident in which more than 34 watches were stolen.

The theft, which took place at Moody's Jewellers on July 17th at 12:30 (BST), saw two men armed with guns which they fired at a shop window, smashing it.

Each of the attackers emerged from a silver Ford Mondeo, which they parked outside the jewellers before emerging to conduct their robbery.

Speaking to The Sentinel, a member of staff said: "You hear about a lot of robberies like this happening in the jewellery trade and you just have to keep going and not let them win.

"We tidied the shop up and were trading again in the afternoon."

Earlier this month, it emerged that £500,000 worth of jewellery had been left in an exclusive London hotel.

The collection was found by a chambermaid at the Westbury Mayfair hotel, with a pair of diamond-encrusted rings and a designer watch included in the haul.
