BANK robbers hit Crouch End this afternoon and injured a cyclist as they made a dramatic getaway down the Broadway.

Barclays bank in the Broadway, near Crouch Hill, was targeted by the thieves at around midday today (Friday).

It is believed that a private security firm was in the process of making a delivery to the bank when a man entered the premises and made off with a cash box, without the use of a weapon.

And in a dramatic getaway scene, the man jumped into a waiting vehicle, which propelled down the Broadway, striking several vehicles and colliding with a female cyclist.

The vehicle stopped a short distance away when the man and its male driver ran off down the street before being accosted by members of the public.

One of the men was detained by a passersby before being arrested - he remains in police custody.

The female cyclist received treatment on site and is not thought to be seriously injured.
