Britain is in the grip of a violent crime wave as thugs run riot on mopeds and motorbikes.
Shocking figures released yesterday show the armed thieves are striking more than 60 times every day.
In a chilling illustration of the crisis, a young woman was fighting for her life last night after her mobile was snatched by moped-riding thieves. And a motorcycle gang targeted yet another luxury store in London yesterday.
Campaigners and politicians warned the attacks were matched by disturbing rises in stabbings, drug crime and gang violence.
London now has a higher murder rate than New York, with more than 70 killings so far this year. Knife crime has also led to the deaths of a 17-year-old boy in Ipswich and of 15-year-olds in Sheffield and Wolverhampton.
