Five men have been sentenced after pleading guilty to a robbery at a jewellery shop in Wiltshire.

They were jailed, after admitting raiding Deacon and Son Jewellers in Marlborough, in September last year.

Armed with crowbars the men smashed display cabinets and took jewellery worth about £300,000.

The men crashed their car on the A419 near the Great Western Hospital, shortly after.
