Burqa-wearing gang convicted for series of smash-and-grab raids in London
A violent "smash-and-grab" gang who wore burqas during a string of high-profile raids in London are facing prison after four members of the group were convicted.
The gang took part in raids dating back to 2007, including a heist at Selfridges department store in which £1.5m worth of watches were stolen.
Four of the gang were convicted at Kingston crown court on Friday for their part in the raids, while five others had already pleaded guilty to their involvement.
