Offenders on two mopeds shattered the front window of Fenwick in High Street around 3.35am today using a weapon, which police say might have been a sledgehammer.

They stole 25 Mulberry, one DKNY and two Hill and Friends handbags.

The burglars left the scene on their mopeds in the direction of Maidenburgh Street and the Dutch Quarter.

Essex Police have released CCTV images of the suspects raiding the store dressed all in black.

Anyone with information, CCTV or dash cam footage that could help police with their investigation is asked to call Colchester Criminal Investigations Department on 101 quoting incident 79 of April 17.

Alternatively, contact the charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
