Detectives investigating the robbery, at the jewellers in New Market at around 4pm on Friday September 16, are appealing for any sightings of a purple/blue coloured Ford Puma car – registration T87 ALO – that was seen in the Hungate car park at around the time of the robbery.

Detective Inspector Simon Bridgland, of Waveney CID, who is leading the investigation, said; 'We would like to speak to anyone who may have seen this distinctive Ford Puma in the Beccles area on Friday afternoon – particularly anyone who may have seen it in the Hungate area, anywhere else in Beccles town centre, or in the Mutford area.

'You may have also seen it being driven around – if you did we would like to hear from you.

'We are working to locate the car and would also like to hear from anyone who may know where it is now. We believe it may still be in the Beccles, Lowestoft, Gorleston or Great Yarmouth area and, as it is a distinctive vehicle, we hope someone may be able to help by telling us where it is now.' Four men arrested on suspicion of robbery in connection with this incident – two 19-year-olds, a 21-year-old and a 26-year-old – and a 21-year-old woman arrested on suspicion of assisting an offender have all now been bailed to return to police on November 9 or 10, while further enquiries are carried out.
