Two men arrested after armed robbery at post office near Burnham

Police have arrested two people after an armed robbery at a post office near Burnham-On-Sea.

Two men aged 28 and 43 have been held following the daylight robbery at Lympsham Post Office at 2.30pm on Friday (July 13th).

A police spokeswoman told "Two men, thought to be armed, entered the store and made off with money."

The men have been arrested on suspicion of robbery and released on bail, pending further enquiries.

As first reported here by, police sealed off the area - as pictured - as they investigated the raid.

Nobody was hurt in the incident, although the post office staff were understandably shaken by the incident - which is the second this year following a previous incident 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.
