A gang of masked men wielding hammers launched a daring raid on jewellers in Glasgow city centre.
The attempted robbery took place in Glasgow’s Argyll Arcade on Wednesday around 12.45pm in front of stunned shoppers.
Police rushed to the scene as the smoke bombs and triggered alarms and onlookers ran for cover.
The masked men reportedly took-off down Buchanan Street before police arrived.
It is not known what, if anything, was taken in the attempted raid.
