Look-outs were reportedly posted outside the store, while others ran inside and took Apple products on display stands.

London's Metropolitan police said they were first called at 12.45am to reports of a burglary.

Ten thieves on mopeds raided London's flagship Apple store on Regent Street in the early hours of Monday morning, threatening security guards with a hammer.

Detectives are examining CCTV images of the incident and appealed for witnesses today. They escaped and left a red scooter inside.

According to police the thieves managed to steal a selection of iPhones, iPads, and Apple Watches, though two iPhone Xs were later retrieved at Kings Cross station. "They break into the front door, one goes inside to grab what they want and then they get out".

Figures suggest that in the year to September, there were more than 19,385 "moped enabled" crimes in the capital - an average of 53 a day - including thefts and robberies. The raid comes a month after a gang of six thieves riding mopeds attacked jewellers Mappin & Webb in the same street.

The Regent Street store is open as usual, and apparently you can't even tell that it was broken into last night.

The thieves, armed with hammers, broke into the store by smashing the windows with mopeds.

Scotland Yard hopes that their new BMW motorbikes will help them chase down moped criminals. The man in his 50s was targeted for his Louis Vuitton bag in the affluent London area of Chelsea.
