We are appealing for information following an attempted burglary in Liverpool this morning (Monday, 16 April 2018).

At around 9.40am, officers were called to Gold and Browns jewellers on London Road, to a report of an attempted burglary. It is reported that three men, believed to be armed with hammers, tried to smash the windows of the shop, before escaping empty handed on two scrambler bikes towards Greek Street.

Two of the riders were wearing white helmets, a third male who was a pillion passenger on one of the bikes was wearing a white jacket and a scarf around his face.

Witness and CCTV enquiries are ongoing and officers will be in the area to provide reassurance to local businesses and the community.

Detective Inspector Paul Speight, said: "I would appeal to anyone who may have seen people acting suspiciously in the area prior to the incident at 9.40am, or who saw the offenders on the scrambler bikes to please come forward as any information, no matter how small, may prove vital to our investigation.

“Thankfully no one was hurt and nothing was taken during this incident, but staff were affected by the incident and naturally were shaken up by what they experienced. We are keen to find these offenders and put them before the courts.

“Anyone with information is asked to contact Merseyside Police social media desk via twitter @MerPolCC or Facebook Merseyside Police CC.
