Computer-generated image released of man officers would like to speak to Officers in south Kent are appealing for witnesses following a robbery at the post office in The Parade in Greatstone, New Romney on Tuesday 12 January.

At between 12.15 and 12.32pm, a man entered the post office and threatened the post mistress there with what is believed to have been a knife.

He demanded packets of cigarettes, which he was given, and left the shop, dropping a packet as he went.
