POLICE have released CCTV images of two men following a robbery at Flyford Stores in Redditch on November 16.

A West Mercia Police spokesperson said: “One of the men was armed with a hammer which he held in his left hand.

Description: The man with the hammer is described as a white male, 5’9″ to 5’11” tall, of medium build.

“He approached the sales assistant in the shop and asked her to open the till.”
