Jewellery store targeted in Gleneagles hotel robbery

A high-end jewellery store has been robbed in a raid at the five-star Gleneagles Hotel in Scotland.

Police Scotland were called to the incident at the Mappin & Webb outlet at about 11.20am today.

It is not known what was taken, with some reports a window display was cleared out at the Perth and Kinross hotel.

Mappin & Webb has two stores within the hotel which sell a "selection of premium fine jewellery and is home to the world's most prestigious Swiss watch brands including Rolex", according to the jeweller's website.

Police Scotland said no-one was injured in the incident but a number of officers remain at the hotel with some areas taped off.

The Gleneagles estate has four golf courses and hosted the Ryder Cup in 2014.
