Security guard attacked in Gravesend Asda store raid

A security guard has been attacked by robbers outside a supermarket in Kent.

The two balaclava-clad men targeted the guard as he filled a cash machine at the Asda store on Thames Way, in Gravesend, just before 12:30 GMT.

They jumped out of a red Mini Cooper, assaulting the security guard and fleeing with a cashbox. The guard suffered a bruised wrist.

The vehicle was abandoned nearby while the cashbox was found in Swanley. It is not known how much money was taken.
