Three robbers wearing long, black, curly wigs stole cash and thousands of pounds worth of jewellery from a West Midlands pawnbrokers.

Police have now released CCTV of the moment the men jumped over the counter of the H and T Pawnbrokers in Great Bridge, Tipton, on Monday afternoon.

The car was later found by police burnt out in Jonah Close, Tipton.

"However, someone may recognise the suspects in the CCTV images."
