Two men are to stand trial on Monday in connection with a raid at a city jewellers nearly two years ago in which thousands of pounds of jewellery were stolen.

CB Jewellers, on Fitzgerald Street at the junction with Ribbleton Lane, Ribbleton, was targeted in May 2012.

The family run business has traded in Preston for around 30 years after being set up in 1980.

Police were alerted when an alarm was triggered. A van was stopped by police on the southbound M6 at junction 31 at Preston a short time after the break in was discovered.

The pair will appear at Preston Crown Court.
