A cashier was threatened with a handgun during a Beckenham bank robbery yesterday morning.

Police were called to Lloyds Bank, in Beckenham High Street, at 9.20am after an armed man entered the bank and stole a quantity of cash.

The suspect escaped the scene on a motorbike driven by a second man, riding the wrong way along Church Avenue - a one way street.

Ambulance crews treated two women, in their 40s, for shock at the scene.

Officers from Flying Squad are continuing to investigate the robbery.

Anyone with any information should call Det Con Daniel Barnard at the Tower Bridge Flying Squad on 020 7232 6530, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
