Designer watches valued at £1m have been stolen from a department store in Manchester.

CCTV footage shows three masked men wearing high visibility jackets bursting into Selfridges just before closing on Wednesday.

The gang - their faces hidden by black balaclavas - smashed open display cabinets using an axe and crowbars and stole approximately 100 watches before escaping in a black Mercedes Benz driven by a fourth man.
