Sadly yesterday (Sunday 30th) afternoon at approximately 4.10pm we were subject to an armed robbery from our shop.
Fortunately no one at the railway was hurt but we are obviously shocked that it has happened.
Shortly after the incident a police officer was assaulted on the nearby ‘Zig Zag’ path when they tried to apprehend a man.
The thief was a white male in his 40s-50s, approximately 5’8″ high. If anyone saw someone acting suspiciously in the area around the Railway or the Zig Zag path, or has any other information which would help the police enquiry, please do report it to the police.
Update:The police now have a suspect in custody. We would like to thank all those who have been in touch to offer their support – locally, nationally and even internationally.
We remain open as normal.
