ARMED robbers threatened staff at a petrol station in Portsmouth with a handgun.

Police are appealing for witnesses after the raid at the Jet service station in Green Road, Southsea.

Three men, who were white, wearing dark clothing with their faces covered, entered the store.

No-one was injured in the robbery, which happened at 5.45pm on December 10.

Detective Constable Ruth Cherry said: ‘Were you in the Green Road area of Southsea that night? Do you remember seeing men wearing dark clothing near the petrol station?

‘Did you see what happened? If so, we would like to speak to you as you may hold important information that could help our investigation.’
