A forecourt cashier has been attacked after two robbers broke into a petrol station in Hull to steal cigarettes and cash before fleeing on a motorbike.

The attack took place at the BP Garage in Spring Bank West, shortly after 6am on Tuesday, August 28.

A spokeswoman for Humberside Police said: “Detectives are investigating reports of a robbery at a store in Spring Bank West, Hull.

“We were called at around 6.10am following reports two men on a motorbike had approached the rear of the shop, kicked in the door and assaulted the shop worker before making off with tobacco and cash. The employee was unhurt but very shaken.”

Both the thieves were wearing hoodies and one was carrying a red satchel. It is also thought that one of the culprits has a Scouse accent.
