Two further witnesses have been identified with regard to an armed robbery at a Suffolk post office last week.
Police carried out anniversary checks yesterday outside Hopton Post Office between 10am and midday in a bid to jog people's memories about what they were doing at the same time a week previously.
Officers were called to the post office on Thelnetham Road on July 27 when a man threatened staff with a handgun and knife. He escaped with an unknown amount of cash before leaving the shop on foot and turning right. He then got into a people carrier with two other people inside which drove off.

Detective Sergeant Andy Day said: “I am very pleased with the public's response to our inquiries so far. We have seen 50 to 60 people this morning in Hopton, and have identified a further two witnesses who will be spoken to again this afternoon.
“We also now believe that the car the offender left the area in was a maroon people carrier, possibly a Toyota Previa, but we have to keep an open mind concerning this.
“Anyone who may have seen such a vehicle in Hopton or the surrounding area last Wednesday should contact police.”
Anyone with information should contact West Suffolk CID on 01473 613500.
