Dramatic CCTV footage has emerged of an armed robbery outside a Bradford store.

In the footage, a man brandishing a machete can be seen approaching a female G4S driver from behind.

She is then attacked outside a Tesco store in Bradford and is thrown to the ground.

The video shows the offenders making off with a cash box containing more than £11,000.

The footage was released to the Telegraph & Argus after yesterday's sentencing of a gang who conspired to carry out a spate of “fearsome” robberies on G4S cash-in-transit vans.



As the T&A reported yesterday, security guard Carol Lane was jumped from behind by two men outside the Tesco Express shop on Bolton Road.

She suffered bruising, and said in a victim impact statement that the incident had led her to undergo counselling as she was now “fearful of being out in public on her own.”

The two men then made off to join two others in a waiting Ford Focus car, which was later found burnt out in the Silverhill Road area of Bradford.

The occupants had switched to a Ford Mondeo which they then crashed into a Subaru before ploughing into a garden wall, abandoning the car at the junction of Silverhill Drive and Upper Rushton Road.

One man, Mohammed Shah, 19, was arrested at the scene and a lump hammer, taser, and three empty petrol cans were recovered from the Mondeo.

Officers also later found a machete and £3,480 at Shah’s home address in Stonegate Road, Bradford.
