An armed robber escaped with just £80 and a packet of cigarettes, when he threatened off-licence staff with a hand-gun last Saturday.

Two female staff at Threshers off-licence, Chipstead Valley Road, Coulsdon, had a hand gun pulled on them on Saturday, July 26, at 9.20pm.

The suspect, a white male, 5ft 11ins tall with a scruffy appearance, entered the shop and asked for a packet of cigarettes, before pulling the gun and escaping with just £80 cash.
