Thames Valley Police is appealing for witnesses following a robbery at a service station in Beaconsfield during the early hours of Tuesday March 3.

Just before 3.30am, two men entered Holtspur Service Station, A40, Beaconsfield, and threatened members of staff with a hammer.

The offenders are described as being between 5ft 10ins and 6ft and of athletic build, but no further descriptions are available. No-one was injured during the robbery.

Anyone with information about the robbery is being urged to contact detective sergeant Tracey Benham via the Thames Valley Police Enquiry Centre on 101.
