STORE RAID: Police have been called to D&H Jeweller's, in Queen Street Arcade, Darlington, following reports of an armed robbery. Reporter Steven Hugill is at the scene for us and says two windows appear to have been smashed with a sledge hammer. He is also speaking to eyewitnesses.

The incident happened shortly before 5pm. It is unclear at this stage what, if anything, the raiders escaped with. More on this story as it develops.
