Masked gang steals £1m of watches from Manchester Selfridges

Three brazen masked raiders stole designer watches worth £1m from a Manchester department store while the shop was busy with customers.

They used an axe and crowbar to smash into cabinets at Selfridges and removed about 100 watches.

The men, who wore high-visibility jackets and trousers, escaped in a black car driven by a fourth man on Wednesday evening.

The haul included brands like Audemars Piguet, Hublot and Cartier.

The raid took place in Exchange Square and the car was found abandoned just over a mile (1.6km) away in Robert Street, in the Strangeways area of the city — via redwolf.newsvine.com
