Masked men armed with a spade and a scaffolding pole robbed a St Neots jewellery shop on Tuesday (December 30).

Two men wearing balaclavas and dark clothing entered the A Freeman store in the High Street at 4.47pm, where they threatened staff before making off with part of a till and silver jewellery.

A third man was waiting for the pair in a blue Mini Cooper, and they drove towards Eynesbury.

Adrian Brittain, of Brittains The Furnishers, said: “It is unnerving in a small town - my thoughts go out to the employees. They are not able to defend themselves in that situation.” INFORMATION: Call police on 101, or Crimestoppers, on 0800 555111.
