Armed man raids scrap metal yard in Aldershot

An armed man escaped with a cash box following a raid on a scrap metal dealing company in Hampshire.

A man wearing a balaclava threatened a cashier at Deane Wood Scrap Yard, Aldershot, but officers would not reveal the type of weapon used.

The suspect escaped in a waiting Vauxhall Vectra which was later found burnt out in a wooded area in Lock Road.

It is thought the occupants then continued in another vehicle.
