Willingdon Post Office thief steals £6,000 in armed raid

An armed masked man has stolen £6,000 in a raid at a post office in Sussex.

Sussex Police said the man brandished what was believed to be a knife or screwdriver before stealing the money from Willingdon Post Office, Eastbourne, on Wednesday.

A force spokesman said the man had threatened a staff member, who had been left very distressed by the incident.

He said the man was described as white and in his late 20s, and was wearing a US flag bandana over his face.
