THIEVES stole jewellery during a raid on a high street antiques store in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Police confirmed they were called to a break-in at Buckingham Antiques on Marlow High Street at 4.07am on Sunday.

The culprits smashed a window and took items of jewellery in the raid.

Police put a cordon around the building while an investigation was carried out.

Buckingham Antiques has been hit by thieves before, with a pair jailed in 2009 for a gunpoint raid on the business the previous year.

Police are appealing for anyone who may have witnessed the burglary, or anyone with any information, to contact Thames Valley Police on 101.
