    A suitcase containing £1m of gems has been stolen from a train luggage rack.

    A jewellery dealer boarded the train at London’s Euston station and realised his bag was missing when the train pulled into Rugby in Warwickshire.

    Police believe his large black case, which had more than 40 gems – including rubies, emeralds and sapphires – was taken before the train left Euston last Wednesday.

    Detectives have released CCTV images of a man they want to speak to.
