Video shows robbers' slow getaway

A quick-thinking member of the public used a mobile phone to capture two would-be robbers making a slow getaway as they left a bank empty-handed.

One viewer commented on Facebook: "They don't look very fit! Shouldn't have much trouble catching them."

One of the men can be seen calmly putting his seatbelt on as his accomplice diligently flicks on his right indicator before driving off.

Leicestershire Police said they were called to Nationwide in Leicester Road, Wigston, at 11:15 BST on 11 May after a report of an attempted robbery.
