Gunman on bicycle raids fish farm
An armed robber who threatened staff at a fish farm and then made his getaway on a bicycle is being sought by police.

He walked into Hawkhurst Fish Farm, in Hastings Road, Kent, on Easter Sunday, threatening workers with a shotgun and demanding money from the till.

He fled with an amount of cash, and left the farm on a bicycle heading in the direction of Hastings.

No-one was hurt during the incident. The robber was described as white, aged 43 to 47 and about 5ft 8ins tall.

He was wearing a hooded raincoat, dark coloured trousers and his face was covered with a dust mask.

Anyone who saw someone on a bike going into or leaving the farm is asked to call police.
