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).

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.
