CEREMONIAL uniforms belonging to British Army units that guard the Queen have been stolen in a robbery at a military supplier.

The nine uniforms and two silver helmets of the Life Guards and Blues And Royals regiments of the Household Cavalry were taken during a break-in in Haringey, north London, a fortnight ago.

The striking garments, worth more than £60,000, are those worn by the senior army units when they ­undertake ceremonial roles including Trooping the Colour at Horse Guard's Parade on the Queen's official birthday, and the State Opening of Parliament.
