Halifax bank staff in Sevenoaks threatened in armed raid

An armed robber wearing sunglasses and a balaclava or a hood has threatened bank staff in west Kent.

The man targeted the Halifax branch in Sevenoaks High Street just after 10:45 GMT, demanding money and waving what was described as a hand gun.

No-one was injured, and he fled the scene and is believed to have got into a nearby car.

Kent Police said a silver car, possibly a convertible, was seen driving erratically in the High Street.

The last sighting of the vehicle was near to the council building.
