Watches worth £300,000 have been stolen during an armed robbery at a hotel in Knightsbridge. A display cabinet was smashed by a gang using a hatchet and a hammer at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel in Cadogan Place just after midnight.
The gang escaped on two high-powered motorbikes and police believe four people were involved. Anyone with information can call police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
The celebrity chef told The Mail on Sunday that closing the London restaurant for a week might seem "rather extreme and over cautious" after the virus affected 45 diners and workers, but said that guests and staff were his main concern.
"My goal has always been to pursue perfection in the kitchen and to amaze our guests with taste sensations beyond their imagination, rather than expose them to the risk of a really nasty couple of days of heaving," he told the newspaper.
Test results this week have shown that there has been an outbreak of norovirus at the Dinner restaurant at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Knightsbridge.
The operators have now temporarily closed the restaurant and we believe this is the responsible thing to do.
Westminster City Council food safety officers have already carried out a thorough inspection of both the restaurant premises and working practices and will continue to work closely with Public Health England and the restaurant operators until the restaurant is given the all-clear.

It is thought there will also be a large wine cellar, an art storage room, gym facilities and male and female changing rooms at the house owned by David Graham, a Canadian who according to reports made hundreds of millions of pounds when he sold his cable television business.
The excavation will descend over 50 feet below the surface say reports, deeper than the height of nearby houses, and will feature a 45-foot swimming pool, hot tub, sauna, massage room, ballroom, covered courtyards, staff accommodation, parking, a turning circle and car lift.
Plans for a huge three-storey basement extension that will treble the size of a Knightsbridge house owned by David Graham have sparked an angry campaign from neighbours, including novelist Edna O'Brien. So what is he planning to build?
By digging down 50 feet, a four-storey basement will triple the mansion's size
There'll be a car lift
And a 45-foot swimming pool which comes with a hot tub.
There'll be accommodation for staff
And what subterranean residential complex would be complete without its own ballroom?
