Two 15-year-old boys were threatened by a gang at a busy retail park in Watford.

The boys handed over a grey iPhone 8, a black iPhone XR, and their wallets, after being approached outside Sports Direct in Waterfields Shopping Park.

It happened back on Saturday June 15 at 4.10pm.

The robbers forced the boys to tell them their mobile phone passcodes before heading off in the direction of Smyths toy store.
