French police have recovered all the jewellery stolen by armed robbers from a shop at the famous Ritz Hotel in Paris on Wednesday, sources say.

They say the loot worth some €4.5m (£4m; $5.4m) was in a bag dropped by one member of the five-strong gang during the brazen raid.

The five-star Ritz is in Place Vendôme, in Paris’ historical first district on the right bank of the river Seine.

Three robbers were arrested after being blocked in the building following the raid at about 18:00 local time, reports say.
