Two people have been arrested in connection with a spate of burglaries at synagogues in London.

In April it emerged that there had been a series of robberies at synagogues in Golders Green.

Police said that over a three-month period around £110,000 worth of religious items had been taken.

On Saturday, police arrested a 42-year-old man over the thefts. A 16-year-old boy will also be questioned over the incidents.
