According to witnesses, three young men in hoods and masks are believed to have smashed the windows of Harrison’s Jewellers with a sledgehammer before grabbing items of jewellery. It’s believed a unique piece worth in the region of £6,000 was one of the items taken during the incident, which happened at around 3.15pm.

A witness said the men drove off in a car which had been double-parked and headed off in the direction of Woburn.
