Dramatic CCTV footage has been released by officers investigating two armed robberies in Hatfield.

Police are now linking two heists in the town.

They believe a robbery, at Martin’s newsagent, in High View, where a 13-year-old boy was threatened with a gun, thought to be an imitation firearm, on October 3 and another at the Mercure Hotel, in Roehyde Way, on October 21, may have been committed by the same raider.

In the second hold-up the crook was said to have donned a red onesie and “pistol-whipped” a hotel worker.

For more on the hunt for the robber and an exclusive interview with the investigating detective, buy the Welwyn Hatfield Times tomorrow (Wednesday).

• Anyone with information should call police on the non-emergency number 101, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
