Armed officers had to be called out to the Royal Bank of Scotland on Queen's Street in Norwich.

Investigations are underway following a robbery at a Norwich bank yesterday afternoon (Friday 18th May).

Officers were called to the Royal Bank of Scotland in Queen's Street at around 3.30pm after reports a man had demanded money from a cashier.

The assailant fled the scene on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash heading towards London Street.

The police helicopter was deployed to assist officers on the ground in the search for the offender. Armed officers were also called as a matter of precaution, although at this stage it is unclear whether a firearm was used during the incident.
