TWO men are being hunted by police over an attempted cashpoint robbery.

Two women aged 23 and 25 were at the machine outside Lloyds TSB bank in Leytonstone High Road when a man leant over and pressed the 'eject' button.

He grabbed the card but the women fought back and wrestled it off him.

The man then ran off down Burghley Road.

It happened on Tuesday October 16 at around 4.20pm, but police have only released details this week.

CCTV of two suspects officers want to question have been released in connection with the investigation.
