Armed robbers - including one wearing a burka - raided a Banbury jewellery shop for the second time in five months stealing £150,000 of expensive watches.

Three men, one believed to have a handgun and another an axe, threatened staff at Michael Jones, in High Street, at 2.20pm today.

The men, all believed to be Asian, escaped in a waiting black Audi estate car in the direction of Broad Street.

The car was later found abandoned in Western Crescent, in the High Town Road area of Banbury.

The other men were all wearing dark clothing and had their faces covered.
