Robbers have stolen a large amount of cash from a bank in a busy student area of Hull.

Humberside Police are appealing for witnesses following the incident at Lloyds Bank on Newland Avenue at 4.55pm on November 24.

At least three men wearing dark clothing and balaclavas were involved in the robbery. All of them are described as slim build and around 5ft 8in tall.

The men used a ladder to break in through the roof of the bank. Staff were working at the time, but no one was injured.

They fled the scene in a grey Nissan Qashqai, heading in the direction of Goddard Avenue. The vehicle was dumped near an alleyway in Loveridge Avenue, where it is believed they got into a second vehicle.

Detective Sergeant Christine Calvert believes someone will have seen something due to the busy nature of the area, which is popular with students. She says the force is looking into a number of lines of enquiry.

Anyone with information is urged to call 101, quoting log number 340 of November 24.
