French police have recovered all the jewellery stolen by armed robbers from a shop at the famous Ritz Hotel in Paris on Wednesday, sources say.

They say the loot worth some 4.5m (4m; $5.4m) was in a bag dropped by one member of the five-strong gang during the brazen raid.

Three men have been arrested, police said, while others remain on the run.
