Two men today (Wednesday) admitted robbery of a Louth jewellers shop when they appeared before Lincoln Crown Court.

Damion David Clark, 29, of Littlecoates, Grimsby, and Christopher London, 25, of Watford Avenue, Grimsby, each 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.

Judge Sean Morris adjourned sentence until next month and both men were remanded in custody.

The charges follow a raid in which two men wearing motorcycle crash helmets forced entry into Eastgate Jewellers on Eastgate, Louth, at lunchtime on 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.

Stolen jewellery was later recovered by police.
