Police investigating a bank robbery in Peterborough, when a man claimed to have a bomb, have released a CCTV video of the incident.

A man robbed the Co-Operative bank in Westgate just before 1pm on Saturday 4th February.

He got away with thousands of pounds after passing a note to the cashier that said he had a bomb, however nobody saw a device.

Police have already released CCTV stills of the incident [see article below], however it's hoped video footage will generate new leads.

Detective Sergeant Rob Norman, from the serious crime team at Thorpe Wood Police Station, said: "I hope this footage of the robbery taking place will encourage someone to come forward with information. 

The man is seen at the counter handing over the note before being handed the money. I believe someone out there knows who this man is and I would urge them to call police.”

 Anyone with information is asked to contact Det Sgt Norman on 101 or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
