inspired by the incident at Hatton Garden that led them to use this

The jewellers specialise in Asian gold


and diamond necklaces, pendants and earrings.


It was unusual because of the value of the property stolen and also


because they were underneath the scope of the alarm system and also


because they have smashed this large hole through the real wall of the


premises. And so they crawled along the floor and managed to evade it?


Yes, it is quite clear by the CCTV that they have not been captured by


the alarm system because they have crawled underneath.


Police are now looking for eight suspects - three who went


inside and five who acted as lookouts in the ten hours running up

London News, Wimbledon. Now the Weather with


Elizabeth Rizzini. Hello. Good afternoon. Some


beautiful weather ahead for the bank holiday weekend. April start of the


morning with some mist. That did not last long and it is replaced with


blue sky and sunshine and that is what we have for the rest of the


afternoon. It will stay dry. Temperatures will peak at a little


bit higher than they were yesterday at around 25 Celsius. A lovely day


with brightness around and the sun will set around 8pm tonight.


Tonight, we will see some cloud drifting in from the west. Northern


Home Counties may start off on a bit of an overcast no tomorrow. Don't be


to put off by that cloud. For many others, it will be a sunny start as


well. Lows of 15 Celsius, so a mild start to the bank holiday weekend


and it is going to be glorious at times. It will stay dry. There will


be plenty of sunshine around. Perhaps a little more in the way of


cloud on Sunday but we should stay dry and it will feel warm in the


sunshine. Temperatures in the mid-20s. For some of us, a cloudy


start, particularly towards the North on Saturday. It won't take


long before the sunshine break through. A lovely, sunny afternoon.


Highs of around 25 Celsius, perhaps as high as 27 Celsius on Saturday.


Perhaps a little bit cooler on Sunday and more in the way of cloud


by the time we get to Monday we could be looking at 27 Celsius or


even 28 Celsius. Becoming changeable again on Tuesday.


Asad Ahmad will be here with our 6.30 evening programme.


But for now, from us all, a very good afternoon.
