Armed robbers hold up HSBC bank in Alperton

Pair storm branch brandishing a sawn-off shotgun

The hunt is on to find two armed robbers who held up a bank in Alperton this morning (Friday).

The pair stormed into HSBC in Ealing Road at around 10.40am, with one man demanding money while the other brandished a sawn-off shotgun.

Both fled empty-handed after a cashier ducked under the counter arousing their suspicion that an alarm had been set off.

Detectives believe one of the robbers fled on a pedal bike.

Both men are white, around 5ft 10-11ins tall and of an athletic built.

One was wearing dark parka jacket with a fur trim around the hood.
