Gucci's flagship store has been ram-raided in a dramatic robbery by three burglars in a black Mercedes.

The car, believed to have been stolen, reversed into the glass doors of the London store in Sloane Street, Kensington, shortly before 10pm on Wednesday night as a number of suspects - possibly three - stole handbags 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."
