CCTV images of possible witness
Police said the people in the images may have "vital" information.

CCTV images of five potential witnesses of an armed robbery at a nightclub in Hampshire have been released.

A male staff member at Wonderland in Basingstoke was tied up and threatened with what is believed to have been a handgun on 25 February at about 13:20 GMT.

Police said the men, described as white and who had their faces covered, stole more than £10,000 during the raid.

The 34-year-old victim was not injured. The men made off towards Church Street.

Stop-checks

Hampshire Constabulary said one of the men was wearing a black padded jacket and dark-coloured trousers. The other man was wearing grey trousers and a dark-coloured jacket.

Det Sgt Danielle Daltrey said: "We would like to speak to the people pictured in these CCTV images as they may have information that is vital to this investigation.

"We believe all these people may have been in Basingstoke at times relevant to the time of this offence and would like to speak to them as potential witnesses."

Police said they had been following "many lines of enquiry" and officers carried out stop-checks of motorists on Churchill Way 24 hours after the robbery.
