Police have released CCTV images following a robbery at a sweet shop in Essex at the beginning of the month.

Two men entered Piccadilly Sweet Shop in Trinity Street, Halstead, on Monday, June 4, and one of the men went to the counter to pay for a drink.

When the cashier opened the till, he reached over to take money out and the second man went around the side of the counter and pushed her.

The staff member was unhurt but left shaken and a three-figure sum of cash was stolen.

Officers would like to speak to the men pictured regarding the incident.

Anyone with information can contact PC Mark Sharman in Braintree CID on 101, quoting reference 42/78130/18.
