Police investigate daylight robbery at post office near Burnham

Police have begun an investigation following a daylight robbery at a post office near Burnham-On-Sea on Friday (July 13th) - the second this year.

Two men entered Lympsham Post Office and demanded cash from staff before fleeing with an unknown quantity of cash.

Police were called to the scene in Lympsham Road soon after 2.30pm, as pictrured here, and they sealed off the area for several hours while their investigations began.

Police spokeswoman Cath Foster told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "I can confirm there was a robbery at the post office in which two men entered the premises, demanded money and made off in a vehicle."

She added that nobody was hurt in the incident, although the staff were understandably shaken by the incident - which is the second this year.

It is the second time the post office has been raided this year. A previous incident occurred in February, which we reported here.

Police have appealed for anyone with information about either incident to get in touch with them via the non-emergency number 101.
