Police hunt for thieves who rammed a car into a bank

The road outside the bank was cordoned off after the raid in Hedge End

A car was driven into the HSBC bank on Lower Northam Road in Hedge End yesterday - Wednesday 30th March.

Three men, who got out of a dark grey Vauxhall Astra, went into the branch and stole money from behind a till before getting into another car - a white Audi - which was driven off in the direction of the roundabout at the end of Lower Northam Road. The three men were white and wore balaclavas during the bank raid.

A member of staff suffered a minor injury to her arm after being grabbed by one of the thieves.

Hampshire Police say the Audi had a '15 number plate'. They are asking anyone with information about the two vehicles mentioned to either contact the police in confidence by calling 101 and quoting 44160121859.
