Balaclava-clad raiders burst into a village Post Office and held up staff with a gun.

The two robbers, who were wearing high visibility jackets and hard hats as well as the ski masks, demanded terrified staff at the Post Office counter in Station Road, Cuffley hand over cash.

The raid took police on Monday afternoon at around 4.30pm.

A police spokeswoman said: “One was holding what is believed to be a gun and he demanded staff hand over money, which they did, before the offenders left the premises.

“No-one was injured during the incident.”

Any witnesses should call the Hertfordshire Constabulary’s non-emergency number, 101,

quoting crime reference number B2/14/4574.
