DETECTIVES have this morning said there does not appear to be a link with two robberies at building societies in Norfolk.

The most recent incident happened last night at the Nationwide branch in the Market Place, Great Yarmouth, at 6.50pm.

A spokeswoman for Norfolk Police said unknown offenders stole a quantity of cash from a security van outside the building.

“There does not appear to be any link to any other incidents at present but investigations are continuing,” she said.

It follows an incident on Wednesday when three men wearing dark clothing held up a security van with what appeared to be a handgun outside the Nationwide Building Society in Riverside Walk, Thetford, at about 6.30pm.

Anyone who witnessed the latest robbery or has any information is asked to contact Norfolk CID on 0845 456 4567 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
