Two women were robbed at knife-point as they waited for a bus in Essex.

The victims were outside Southend Victoria train station on Thursday night (October 19), at about 10.50pm.

They were approached by a cyclist - aged in his late teens and wearing a grey hoody - who threatened them with a knife.

He got away with a brown leather satchel containing cash, two phones and tobacco.

Police have been trawling CCTV from the area but have yet to trace the cyclist.
