See the CCTV images here.

The items were taken from a cabinet by a woman while her female accomplice distracted a shop assistant.

Rebecca Newcombe, director at the independent jewellers, has released CCTV images of the two female suspects in an attempt to help people identify the pair.

“It was obviously a bit of a blow,” she said.

“We have stepped up security measures and hope people recognise the two women.”

The first woman is described as being aged between late 50s and early 60s, around 5ft 6ins, had brown coloured hair tied back, had a number of gold teeth, was of a large build and was wearing a blue cardigan, floral patterned top, long denim skirt, black leather open-toed sandals and red socks. She was holding a small handbag.

Witnesses or people with information relating to this incident are urged to call police on 101.
