Raiders were helping themselves to the contents of Champion Jewellers on Half Moon Lane when a flower-pot was hurled in their direction by a tenant of a flat opposite. The startled raiders found themselves in the next moment the target for a bombardment of boots, shoes and other missiles from neighbouring windows, and jumping into their car they drove away.
