A RING said to be of 'high value' has been stolen from a town centre jewellery store.

Police received a report of a theft at Browns Family Jewellers on Peel Street at about 3.15pm on Thursday.

Two men allegedly entered the shop and asked to look at rings. An assistant obliged and it's alleged they then stole one before leaving the store.

The men ran off past the Post Office and in the direction of Morrisons.

Anyone with information is asked to call South Yorkshire Police on 101 quoting incident number 590 of March 12.
