This is an unusual method to conduct a burglary, and they may have been
inspired by the incident at Hatton Garden that led them to use this
option to gain entrance to the property.
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

there is lower travel on the network.
A lot of people are away on their holidays, and therefore we
often choose these bank holiday weekends to do our major engineering
We recognise there will be some disruption of our customers.
It is a lower number of people that are
impacted, so hence the amount of work that we're doing over this
weekend, not just here at London Bridge but also at Euston, at
Waterloo and other major centres around the country.

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.
