Thieves on scooters stole d esigner handbags from a luxury boutique store in central London this morning.

Police said four suspects are wanted after the smash and grab raid at the Valentino store on Sloane Street at 12.30am during which the thieves used one of their three mopeds to force open the door of the shop.

One man was arrested in Ladbroke Grove, west London, where police recovered a scooter but no stolen property. He remains in custody.

The raid comes just days after a similar incident at the Larizia store in St John's Wood High Street, north west London, on July 28 when handbags valued at around £100,000 were taken.

Seven people were arrested in relation to that robbery and have been bailed to appear in August.

Met police said it is too early to say if the latest raid, after which t wo scooters made off towards Marylebone and the third towards Kilburn, is linked to any others.
