An e-fit and CCTV images have been released after robbers drove a car into a bank in Hampshire.

A Vauxhall Astra with three men inside was driven into HSBC bank in Lower Northam Road, Hedge End, on Wednesday morning.

The men, wearing balaclavas and dark clothing, left in a white Audi A3 after stealing cash from behind the till.

The Astra - believed to be stolen - was abandoned at the bank, along with a beer barrel.

The Audi, reported stolen in Liverpool in September, was found in Havendale, Hedge End, on Thursday night.

Police said one member of staff, a 31-year-old woman, sustained bruising after one of the men grabbed her wrist.

A spokesman said her injury was "believed to be minor" but she was "understandably shaken".
