Police investigating an armed robbery at a village post office in Suffolk have spoken to motorists and passersby one week after the incident.
A man armed with a knife and a handgun threatened staff at Hopton Post Office in Thelnetham Road on 28 July.
The robber took cash and made off in a dark-coloured people carrier with two other people inside.
Det Sgt Andy Day said: "We still need to speak to anyone who was in Hopton or passing through."
He added: "It is not known in which direction the car went after the robbery, and so I would urge anyone along the Suffolk and Norfolk border who may have seen such a vehicle to get in touch."
The offender is described as in his 20s and between 5ft 10in (1.7m) and 6ft (1.8m).
Police said he had been wearing wearing dark glasses, a grey fleece and a red baseball cap.
