Appeal after 'smash and grab' robbery

Detectives are appealing for witnesses and information following a 'smash and grab' robbery at a north London shopping centre.

Police were called shortly after 10.15am on Tuesday 6th November, to reports of a robbery at Fraser Hart jewellers, inside Brent Cross Shopping Centre.

Officers attended. It is understood that six suspects travelling on three motorbikes, pulled up at the entrance next to New Look. Armed with what appears to be axes and bats, three pillion passengers got off the bikes and ran on foot towards the ground floor jewellery store.

They then smashed glass windows displaying watches and jewellery - some of which were stolen.

The three men then fled back to their awaiting motorbikes and drivers and drove in the direction of Hendon Central.

The motorbikes were found abandoned 15 minutes later on Ashley Walk in Mill Hill.

Mill Hill pizza "saltier than the Atlantic"

A restaurant has been selling pizza saltier than sea water, according to research by health organisations.

A pepperoni pizza from the Adam & Eve restaurant in Mill Hill, north London, contained 10.57g (0.37oz) of salt.

It has 2.73g (0.09oz) of salt per 100g (3.52lb), compared to the Atlantic Ocean which has 2.5g of salt per 100g.

The restaurant's owners said they welcomed the research - involving 199 UK pizza outlets - and have altered their recipe to reduce salt levels.
