Video: Axe-wielding motorbike raiders caught on camera riding through shopping mall

ROBBERS on motorcycles were caught on camera as they drove though a shopping mall after raiding a jeweller's shop yesterday.

Four people carrying what are believed to be axes and bats entered Brent Cross Shopping Centre, in north London, shortly after 10.15am.

The gang, who rode into the centre on three motorbikes, left with a haul of watches and jewellery.

No one was injured in the raid, but an elderly man was treated for shock at the scene.

A Metropolitan Police spokeswoman said: "No firearms were seen. The suspects fled the scene on the motorbikes in the direction of Hendon Central.

"The motorbikes were subsequently found abandoned a short time later at a nearby golf course."
