Police have released CCTV images of moped riders they wish to speak with after a cash-in-transit robbery.

Two males riding a blue/silver scooter rode up to a custodian who was entering Sainsbury’s in Chingford’s Hall Lane at noon on May 3.

The pillion passenger got off the scooter, which had a stolen number plate, and ran towards the guard before grabbing the box from him.

After mounting the rear of the scooter, the pair rode off in the direction of Haringey or Hackney.

Detective Constable Tom Boow, from the Flying Squad, said: "The two suspects were wearing distinctive clothing, including matching dark purple puffer-style jackets, dark purple trousers, black and purple trainers and black helmets.

"This brazen offence took place in broad daylight, and we are hoping that these images may jog the memory of someone who witnessed the robbery.”

Anyone with information is asked to call officers via 101 quoting reference 2877/3May or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
