Footage of the moment an armed robber stages a bank heist in Cornwall has been released to Pirate FM.

The man, wearing a cap, walks into the Natwest on Bank Street in Newquay and straight up to the cashier.

He puts a handwritten note, in orange, up against the screen. It is thought to have read, "I have a gun. Give me all your money or I will harm your customers. Keep calm."

As the single cashier began to hand over money he told her, "Come on. Hurry up."

He put it into a hessian type bag and walked out of the bank, where he was captured on CCTV again.

The hold up happened on Tuesday 25th June and police are trying to find anyone who might know the man, wearing a dark coat with Helly Hansen written down the left arm.

Detective Inspector John Trott told Pirate FM: "It involved a weapon, although no weapon was seen. So, from a public reassurance point of view we can't say whether there was a weapon or not. Thankfully, though, these things are few are far between in Cornwall.

"These things do happen. They do happen in Cornwall - thankfully very rarely. But maybe it's a sign of the times and the economic times we're in that these things do increase nationally and, therefore, at some stage it will impact on Cornwall."
