Several "high value" items have been stolen from renowned auction house Christie's.

Jewellery, antiques and valuable works of art, including rare pieces by the famed house of Faberge, were taken from the auctioneer's headquarters in King Street, central London, the Mail on Sunday has reported.

The burglary, which was reportedly captured on CCTV, is said to have occurred two weeks ago but no arrests have been made.

Scotland Yard did not name Christie's but said: "We can confirm that officers from Westminster are currently investigating a burglary at business premises which is believed to have occurred between 6pm on Sunday, December 7 and 8am on Monday, December 8.

"A number of high value items were taken. Inquiries continue. No arrests have been made."
