POLICE are hunting three masked armed robbers who raided a popular Wigan town centre jewellery shop in broad daylight.

Early reports indicated that the men forced entry to Neil Kay Jewellery in the Galleries just before 10:30am this morning (Tuesday) armed with crowbars and a hammer.

Eyewitnesses saw the trio escaping from the scene with a bag in the direction of Mesnes Street after store owner Neil Kay gave chase.

Officers believe the robbers made off with a considerable amount of jewellery. Mr Kay was not hurt during the incident.
