After a jewellery shop was raided last week, businesses in Hampstead are being urged to work together to avoid further crime in the area.
According to the shop, four men broke into the Dinny Hall store in Hampstead High Street in the early hours of Saturday morning taking jewellery and leaving a trail of broken glass and debris in their wake.
CEO creative director Dinny Hall said: “We are devastated. We are a small team and have worked incredibly hard to make our Hampstead store integrally part of the local retail community.
“We will pull together with the help of our fantastic local support network in Hampstead and stand strong against this type of anti-social behaviour,” she added.
The store said CCTV taken at the time of the raid shows two of the thieves were on motorcycles.
