Security officer robbed of cash in Bournemouth

A security officer has been robbed of cash and keys after collecting money from a Dorset supermarket.

The G4S officer had just visited Tesco Express in Shillingstone Drive, Bournemouth, on Tuesday morning when he was confronted by a masked man.

Police said the robber, who was dressed in black, escaped with a "significant amount" of cash and a set of G4S keys.

Detectives are trying to trace the getaway vehicle - a small dark green hatchback vehicle, similar to a Mazda.

Officers are also trying to trace the occupants of a dark blue vehicle seen in the area at the time of the robbery, at about 10:40 GMT, who may have seen the getaway vehicle.
