The suspects are three white men with eastern European accents who were wearing dark clothing and face coverings, the Met Police said.

They were disturbed by neighbours as they raided the house in Aldersbrook Avenue, Enfield, north London, at about 20:00 GMT on 23 March, jumping through an open window as they fled.

Det Insp Paul Ridley said: “We now have images of a vehicle that was parked near to the scene of the crime and appears to be carrying out reconnaissance in the area.

“The firearms which were stolen are very distinctive and will almost certainly be recognised by the public and anyone who is offered them for sale.

“The owner of these unique items is devastated, particularly in terms of the sentimental value – they were due to be showcased on display as part of a national exhibition.”
