Man queues up before robbing NatWest bank in Hove

A man who robbed a bank after waiting in a queue and then passing a note to the cashier is being sought in Sussex.

Police said the robber was probably covered in purple dye after a security device on the cash from NatWest in Church Road, Hove, was activated.

The robbery happened on Tuesday at 1340 GMT, and is being linked by police to two others in Brighton and Hove.

The man was described as being in his late 40s, with shaved fair hair, of slim build with a pointy-shaped face.

He was wearing a beige-coloured baseball cap and dark jacket with a large collar.

Officers said he was carrying a blue carrier bag and may have taken off his cap when he left the bank.

The man is being linked to a robbery at the Co-Operative Bank on Western Road, Brighton on 1 March, and one at the Halifax Building Society in George Street, Hove, on 25 February.
