A spokesperson said after the raid on Monday evening: "We had quite a few calls about a ram-raid ongoing. It would appear there were three cars being used: a Nissan Qashqai, which is still in the shop, a BMW X1, which we believe has been used to leave the scene, and a red car."

It is third time the Vicar Lane clothes store has been targeted in just nine months.

Footage emerged in June 2018 of a van that had ram-raided the shop before taking off in a black Audi with items of clothing.

The high-end fashion store was first targeted back in December 2017, when masked men appeared to target the city centre location.
