314 mobile phones 'stolen in London every day'
Some 314 mobile phones are stolen on London's streets every day, according to the Metropolitan Police.
IPhones account for about half of all stolen handsets and can be sold on for up to £250, according to the Met's gangs taskforce in Lambeth.
The unit, which aims to tackle street robbery within minutes of it taking place, said offenders were traced three or four times out of 10.
On Tuesday the Met launched a campaign to cut street robbery in the capital.
