Burglars attempted to smash their way into a jeweller in Ely.

The incident happened at Italian Jewellery, in High Street Passage, at about 4.40am on Wednesday, April 15.

It involved three masked people, two of whom used a form of battering ram in an attempt to break into the shop.

Their attempts were unsuccessful and they made off in the direction of Ely Cathedral.

PC Andy Harding said: “Due to excellent security at the shop, entry was not gained, the alarm sounded and the assailants fled on foot empty handed.

“I would urge anyone with information to come forward.”

Anyone with information should call PC Harding on 101, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111, or online at Crimestoppers-uk.org
