WATCH Armed robbers filmed fleeing bank in shock footage
The gang threatened Nationwide employees with a blade as they demanded cash before trying to make a quick getaway. But in eye-opening footage filmed on a smartphone, it appears the thugs left empty-handed one after the other. The phone footage captures the two crooks, sporting motorcycle helmets, racing from the scene in a grey Ford car. The criminals targeted Nationwide in Wigston, Leicestershire, at 11.15am on Wednesday last week. No one was injured during the raid. Detective Constable Eliot Burgess of Leicestershire Police said: "We hope by releasing the footage someone may remember seeing something of significance."Did you see two people acting suspiciously around the premise or do you recognise the vehicle? "The vehicle was displaying a false registration plates which may have since been changed again. "If you were in the Leicester Road area of Wigston during the morning of May 11 and haven't yet spoken to the police, get in touch."
