Jewellery Shop Explosion

Edinburgh was rocked when a Jewellery shop in the city was destroyed on 26th March.

Magpie Jewellery only opened in Edinburgh last year but had built a name for supplying high quality cut stones.  It is believed that the attack was an attempt at robbing the store gone wrong.

Police and Fire crews were called to the scene on late Monday night when explosions ripped through the store on West Bow, causing damage to neighbouring buildings.

Luckily there were no reports of any injuries and the ensuing blaze was put out quickly.    Investigations are ongoing.    The area was checked for any unexploded ordinance, but nothing was found.
