The gang was seen driving a black Audi to the victim's home in the Abbey Road area of north London.

Armed with a large knife three men forced their way inside while another waited in the car.

The woman handed over jewellery, including her wedding ring, to try to get the men to leave.

After failing to find the safe they eventually left while the victim ran into her baby's room and waited for police to arrive.

This was a terrifying incident, made all the more callous by the fact that the victim was at home along with her young baby.

All have their faces concealed and are wearing dark clothing, but it is hoped someone may recognise the vehicle, which has the registration GU13 FDV. It is unknown as to whether the vehicle was on false plates.

If you have any information that could assist us, please call now.
