Shocking mobile phone footage has surfaced of the moment an armed moped gang robbed a luxury jewellers in Knightsbridge.
The raiders were armed with a sledgehammer as they descended on Boodles in Knightbridge at just after 10.30am this morning.
The thugs smashed their way through display counters, with three of the six-strong gang remaining outside on watch.
The video appears to show smoke rising from inside the building, with reports suggesting the gang used a smoke bomb during the robbery.
The gang were then seen fleeing from the scene in Basil Street, with one thug clearly holding a sledgehammer.
Scotland Yard says it is now investigating the brazen daylight robbery, but no arrests have been made.
There are no reports of any injuries.
The full video can be seen below.
