Dear Editor

When I drove past McColl's Haddenham this morning, Monday 28th July 2014 at 7.00am the news agent has been cordoned off by police with two police officers standing outside.

The shutters for the main part of the shop were still down but the shop door was open.

There was no obvious damage to the front of the shop (including the ATM)

A lot of the locals who use it were wandering away looking bemused.

Update:

It appears that the shop was robbed early on Monday morning, and that all the weekend takings were lost. We have reports that the perpetrator came in the back where the papers are delivered.

Police are of the opinion that the perpetrator was not local.

The staff on duty at the time are okay but obviously rather shaken up!

Additional Update:
(Source: Bucks Herald, 29Jul14)

Two newsagent staff, a man and a woman, were threatened with a weapon and tied up during an armed robbery on Monday 28th July.

Staff at Martin McColl's in Banks Parade, Haddenham were taking delivery of newspapers at around 5.10am when the robber approached the pair and forced them inside before tying them up.

He then stole a sum of cash from the till before running off. He is described as a 6ft male of mixed race in his 20s and wearing a baseball cap and scarf.

He was armed with a weapon, however police have so far been unable to confirm what this was.

Anyone with information that could help the investigation should call DC Gemma Robinson on non emergency number 101, quoting URN 167 of July 28.

We will publish further information as it is received.
