Burqa gang stole watches worth £1m from Selfridges
Armed raiders who targeted London's Selfridges store while dressed in burqas fled with £1m worth of luxury watches, police said on Saturday.
The six-strong gang used the religious dress to disguise themselves and the tools they were carrying during the raid at 8.30pm on Thursday, police said.
The axe and sledge hammer-wielding group smashed glass cabinets at a pre-arranged moment then filled holdalls with the watches.
