He threatened staff in Lloyds in Station Road in New Milton last month - and escaped with cash.

On Thursday 16 April, at 3.20pm, a man entered the front of the bank, approached the cashiers and demanded they hand over cash. He left via the entrance and made off up Station Road, turning left into an alleyway by Lloyds Pharmacy into the car park on Spencer Road. He made off with a small amount of cash.

The man police want to speak to is described as a white man, medium build, wearing a dirty, light coloured jacket, navy blue baseball cap, aviator style sunglasses, grey jogging bottom, white footwear. He had light coloured shirt tails hanging out from the rear of his jacket.
