Two men have appeared in court in Lincoln today after pleading guilty to a jewellery robbery in Louth earlier this summer.

Damion David Clark, 29, of Littlecoates, Grimsby, and Christopher London, 25, of Watford Avenue, Grimsby, appeared at Lincoln Crown Court this morning (Friday).

The two men raided Eastgate Jewellers in Louth at lunchtime on Monday, June 24.

The men made off with jewellery and cash after smashing open display cabinets but when they attempted to flee from the scene they found their getaway motorcycle had been knocked over by members of the public.

One of the men was arrested near to the scene but the other was arrested later the same day in Grimsby after a large scale police search.

Each have pleaded guilty to robbing Julie Smith of jewellery and cash on June 24.

Clark also admitted attempting to take a Citroen C3 car belonging to Eric Chapman and a further charge of unlawfully wounding Mr Chapman on the same date.

At court on Friday sentencing was adjourned until a date to be fixed and both men were remanded in custody.
