Two more men have been arrested by police investigating an armed raid in which a family were tied up and the father was threatened with a firearm.

A gang of about eight masked and armed men broke into a house in Newchapel, Surrey, in June 2012.

Detectives, who made their first arrest last week following a BBC Crimewatch appeal, have arrested two more men in south London.

All three were arrested on suspicion of aggravated burglary.

Two have been bailed until September and one remains in custody.

During the raid on 12 June, burglars tied up the family of four, including two teenage daughters, and went through the house, taking high value items including a Rolex watch.

In an appeal on Crimewatch in March, the victim identified only as John, described how he thought he would be shot dead in front of his wife and daughters.
