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.
