This news is from Paris. A car crashes into a shop. It is a 4x4 car. Thieves get out of the car. They go into the shop. They steal things. They take purses. The purses cost thousands of pounds.

The thieves set the car on fire. They drive away on scooters. Police have the car. They study it.

This is not the first robbery like this in Paris. This happens in London, too.

Difficult words: thief (a person who steals/takes things), purse (a woman’s bag for money), robbery (robbing a place – stealing/taking things).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
