London smash & grab caught on camera(phone)

Their target, gleaming in the display in front of them, about £250,000- worth of watches – including brands such as Cartier, Rolex and Breitling.

Passers -by, who captured the moment with cameras on mobile phones, said it took at least five hits to cave the windows in.

I looked up ‘Connors’ (the photo copyright) to see if there was information about sending photos to them (I imagine they’re the picture agency selling the photo) and their policies. I wondered, perhaps, if the enterprising soul with the mobile camera who took this picture used the likes of Scoopt to send the photo out to the media. Alas I couldn’t find any information.

I reckon the photo was taken on an N95. What do you think?

An n73 could’ve taken that photo, as well.
But the question is, did the photo really help anyone?

Except it’s a pretty cool photo.
