Police release CCTV of Bradish during day release raids

Police have released CCTV footage of a notorious robber, who carried out a series of armed raids during a day release from prison.

Sean Bradish was given three life sentences in total, with a minimum of 17 years imprisonment.

Bradish calmly walked into a high street bank on Finchley Road, at midday and made his way to the counter. As he approached the cashiers he pulled out a silver-coloured imitation firearm and threatened the bank staff.

The bank staff handed over £8,500 in notes which Bradish stuffed into a rucksack he was carrying before walking out of the bank.
