Detectives investigating an armed robbery at a jewellery store in Whitechapel have released images of items similar to those stolen and a picture of the unique hallmark etched on the missing pieces. Police think the robbers may try to pawn the jewellery and are urging anyone who has been sold the items to get in touch.

A staff member was assaulted and others were threatened with knives in the raid, which happened in May this year. Four people riding on two mopeds struck at the UKAY store on Whitechapel Road.
