Three men posing as customers have stolen a 250,000 euro (£217,000) diamond ring from an upmarket department store in Paris, French police have said.

A Paris police official said the heist happened at the Tiffany & Co concession in the Printemps store at around 10.30 on Thursday morning.

Three men pretending to be customers asked to look at several very expensive rings. They eventually decided on a three-carat diamond set in a platinum ring.

The thieves took advantage of a moment's inattention by the sales person to make off with the ring, also avoiding detection by Printemp's security guards.
