Using a metal bar, they were able to dent the shutters and gain entry to the premises. A cash till was taken out of the store and given to a man on a mobility scooter who was then able to travel quickly away from the store. Four suspects were captured on the CCTV. 'Suspect 1' is described as a white man of medium build with a dark beard wearing a black cap, blue top with writing, black tracksuit bottoms, black trainers and light coloured gloves.
