A thief wanted in Europe for stealing rings worth thousands of euros could have struck in the UK, police believe.
A woman, usually dressed in a headscarf and wearing gold-rimmed glasses, is being sought by police in Europe for a string of thefts over a 10-year-period.
Following a BBC News website story, experts are now also linking her to the theft of a £120,000 ring in London.
CCTV footage from the targeted stores in London, Paris and Frankfurt appears to show the same woman.
In the Paris and Frankfurt thefts, valuable rings were swapped for replicas. At the London store, staff were distracted and later discovered that the ring had vanished.
In all cases the middle-aged woman has an accomplice, a man or a younger woman.
