Police investigating a bomb-threat robbery at a bank in Peterborough have released CCTV images of a man they want to speak to.

The robber made off with thousands of pounds from the Co-operative Bank in Westgate just before 13:00 GMT on 4 February, after claiming he had a bomb.

He handed a note to a cashier saying he had a bomb but no device was seen.

Forensic tests are being carried out on the note and police said they were following up "other lines of inquiry".

After leaving the bank it is thought the man walked briefly towards the nearby Beales department store before walking back towards the Park Road area.

Det Sgt Rob Norman, from Cambridgeshire Police, said he was "keen to speak to the man pictured... in connection with the robbery".

He said no arrests had yet been made.

Anyone with with information is urged to contact police on 101.
