Ram-raid hits flagship Gucci store

Police are investigating a ram-raid at a Gucci store in Kensington

The flagship store of designer label Gucci has been ram-raided, Scotland Yard has said.

A black Mercedes which is believed to have been stolen reversed into the glass doors of the London store in Sloane Street, Kensington, shortly before 10pm on Wednesday night.

A number of suspects - possibly three - stole handbags during the smash and grab before fleeing in a blue Audi A4.

Investigating officers from Kensington and Chelsea CID said there have been no arrests.

Gucci describe the store on their website as a "flagship boutique" that covers 20,000 square feet on two floors.

It adds: "An impressive 60-metre facade looking on to London's famed Sloane Street captures attention through the use of tone-on-tone bronze metal enhanced with a special LED lighting affect."
