Burglars attempted to smash their way into Montpellier Antiques on Montpellier Mews in the early hours of this morning.

The jewellery store was targetted by burglars after midnight on Wednesday May 28 using a pick-axe handle and beer barrel.

The would-be robbers failed to get into the property and nothing was stolen, although they caused a considerable amount of damage to the door of the shop.

Police believe the suspects were loitering in the area prior to the incident and are appealing to anyone who was in the area at the time and saw or heard any suspicious activity, to contact them.
