Two men made off with thousands of pounds from a post office in Sussex this evening, police have told ITV News Meridian.
The men, in their 20s, threatened staff at the shop in Brunswick Road in Shoreham just before half past five.
They are then believed to have run away from the post office in the direction of the railway line.
There's currently a cordon in place while police and crime scene investigators gather evidence.
