Yesterday police confirmed that they were investigating possible links with attempted raids on jewellers in Essex and Hertfordshire which happened on Thursday and Friday . In both cases, the robbers were armed with a sledgehammer but left empty-handed.
Staff at Cox and Son jewellers in Northgate Street, Yarmouth, chased off the robbers at about 3.20pm on Saturday as shoppers watched. The raiders, who had snatched a selection of watches, got into a red and grey Rover 214 where a third male was waiting as the driver. Before they could drive off, the staff smashed the passenger window with a chair.
