Spencer Matthews hid in London jewellers vault during smash-and-grab gang raid

Spencer Matthews hid in the vault of a London jewellery store during a smash-and-grab gang raid today.

The reality TV star, 30, got caught up in the robbery at a store in Marylebone this morning.

A gang of thieves on mopeds smashed their way into The Hour House just minutes after the Made In Chelsea regular went into buy a watch.

Spencer was downstairs shopping with two friends when the raid was carried out on the floor above him and the trio hid until it was over.

Afterwards, Spencer posted about the incident on Instagram , revealing the only watch not taken in the raid was the onehe had gone in to buy.

He shared a video of himself showing off the pricey timepiece, saying: "If that's not luck, I don't know what is."

He added of his ordeal: "I just had to hide in a safe. More like a vault downstairs while this watch shop The Hour House on Duke Street got smashed to pieces by armed robbers.

"These guys drive a scooter through the glass and start battering the shop with hammers, big huge hammers, wearing helmets.

"We're in the back of the shop looking at them, sprint downstairs, hide in the vault until all the noise passes.

"Come upstairs and the place is just battered. Like I mean Gonzo. All the watches gone.

"We were looking around and I'm just thinking f***ing hell the thing that I've been waiting for has obviously just been nicked so I'm going to have to go and get another one.

"'Lo and behold we look around and on the floor amongst all the rubble and the glass and stuff there's one watch in the entire shop and it's mine.

"Now if that's not luck I don't know what is."

Officials at Scotland Yard have confirmed specialist firearms cops were sent to the scene, where a man in his 30s was treated for an eye injury after the store's windows were smashed.

The raid is said to have involved six men and four mopeds.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "Police are working at the scene of a smash and a grab at a store in Duke Street, Westminster. Officers were called at 10.32am.

"A number of males armed with weapons are reported to have driven to the premises on mopeds and smashed a window before stealing goods and fleeing.

"Officers attended, including specialist firearms colleagues. A man aged in his 30s has been treated for an eye injury sustained after the shop window was smashed.

"At this stage there have been no arrests. Enquiries continue. Anyone who has information that could assist police is asked to call 101 ref CAD 2222/28 May."
