Police hunting armed robbers who raided bank in Leicestershire

Police are hunting a gang of robbers who drove into the front of a bank in Oadby in Leicestershire during this mornings rush hour.

It happened at around 8.40am at the Santander branch in The Parade, where some staff had already arrived for work.

It's believed the gang had reversed a car into the building to smash the window.

A deposit machine was damaged and cash taken before the suspects left.

No cash was taken from an ATM in the building and no injuries have been reported.

The investigation is at a very early stage and we are urging anyone who was in the area and has any information to make contact.

“We understand a number of people may have filmed the incident on mobile phones – if you have not already handed this to us, we urge you to do so.

“Anyone who has any CCTV or dashcam footage from the area at the time should also check this and get in touch.

“If you were in the area at the time of the incident, please get in contact – your information could assist our investigation.”
