Three windows at the front of Gemini, in Sheerness High Street, were broken at 3.10am before women's jewellery worth an estimated £6,000 was stolen.

He added he hopes to have the business open and back to normal in about a week and reassured his customers nothing of theirs was taken.

A police spokesman said: "Officers are at the scene and are examining forensic evidence, as well as following up a number of lines of inquiry."

A cordon was put in place around the front of the shop and shattered glass could be seen in the shop's entrance.
