Police are keen to hear from someone who has been offered a designer handbag or Canada Goose coat following a ram-raid in Altrincham.

A gray Toyota Aygo reversed into the window of Flannels, a designer goods shop on George Street, in the early hours of Saturday, February 2.

Officers said two other vehicles, a white Ford Transit van and a blue Audi A4, then pulled up to the store and a number of offenders ran in and stole the items.

The Toyota was left behind the scene in the other two vehicles.

Designer handbags worth around £ 1,000 each were stolen, along with a number of Canada Goose coats, each worth more than £ 800. The total was estimated at around £ 40,000.

Police launched an investigation and said on Sunday, February 24, that a man has been arrested.

Detective Inspector Dave Jones from GMP's Borough Trafford said: "We have a 38-year-old man in custody on suspicion of burglary.
