Detectives are appealing for further information following a masked robbery at a jewellery shop in Hitchin

On Friday at 5 pm the Glenray Jewellers on Market place was robbed by two men wearing balaclavas who threatened staff with a sledgehammer before making off with jewellery.

The men got away in a black Vauxhall Vectra which was later found abandoned on Old Charlton Road in the town.

Detectives now want to speak to anyone who may have information about a white van which they believe the robbers used after abandoning the Vauxhall.

Detective Sergeant Gerard Ellis, from Stevenage CID, said: "We are keen to speak with anyone who may have seen a white van with two Ls in the registration number around the Old Charlton Road or Wratten Close area at the time of the incident.

"If anyone saw a white van in that area prior to, or just after the incident, or saw any men acting suspiciously we would like to hear from them."
