ARMED robbers raided a family run jewellery shop in broad daylight.

Three masked men burst into the jewellers on Carlton Street, Westgate End, at 3.40pm on Saturday.

They stole cash and jewellery while a fourth man stood outside with a chainsaw.

Afterwards they sped off in a dark blue Mitsubishi towards Westgate Common Working Mens Club, on Park Grove Road.

Detectives believe they then got into a black Audi RS4 Quattro and drove towards Horbury Bridge.

Anyone with information should contact DC Steve Wright at Wakefield CID on 101.
