The CCTV footage was filmed during the heist on October 25, but only just released by Metropolitan Police.

In the video, a Range Rover can be seen ploughing through the glass doors, stunning shoppers.

Three robbers move swiftly to shatter the display cases and fill their backpacks.

But they didn't manage a smooth escape, with one of the thieves caught by a shopper as he fled.

The thief, named as Ben Wegener, was jailed on Friday after pleading guilty to a multitude of charges including robbery and dangerous driving.

London police released the footage of the robbery this week as they appeal for help in finding the two others involved.
