Two G4S security staff have been robbed after being threatened by a man with a hand-gun at a branch of Nationwide in Northampton.

It happened on Thursday night after the staff pulled up in a van outside the Nationwide Building Society in St Leonard's road (pictured) on Thursday night, sometime between 1045pm and 1110pm (10th January).

The offender demanded they hand over a cash box before running off towards Towcester Road.

The offender is described as white, about 6ft, with a slim build and in his mid-20s.

He was wearing a dark green balaclava with a bobble on the top and a dark-coloured top and trousers. He was also wearing dark brown gloves that looked like thick leather material with stitching on the outside.

Police say any witnesses, or anyone with information, are asked to contact Northamptonshire Police on 101. Alternatively, they can call independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
