This is the moment suspected thieves entered a jewellery store in a county Armagh one hour before stealing from another.

Two men, in the grey t-shirts, are believed to have stolen a diamond ring worth £2,500 from Faith Jewellers in Rushmere on Thursday afternoon.

He also spoke with a Southern Irish accent and is believed to have been in the company of a second male.
