Armed robbery at Lostwithiel post office
Saturday 14th August 2010
Anybody driving through Lostwithiel yesterday late afternoon will have been intrigued by the crowds outside the post office, the police cars and the helicopter hovering above the town.
We spoke to the postmaster this morning. He explained that there had been an attempted armed robbery. He saw off the attacker who was armed with a shotgun. However, he seems to think that the armed robber, who left empty handed, had escaped. No doubt, we will have more news of this serious incident in the Cornish Guardian and other local newspapers as well as on the regional television news.
A bit too close for comfort...
