Police have released terrifying CCTV stills of the moment an alleged gunman raided a supermarket in Hampstead.
Flying Squad officers investigating an armed robbery at Tesco in Heath Street published the images this week as they continue to appeal for witnesses.
A man carrying what appeared to be a gun held up the store at about 6.45am on Friday, February 28, and reportedly made off with about £1,400 of coins from the self-service checkouts, which staff had been counting.
He allegedly pointed the weapon at staff and threatened to shoot them if they did not open the tills.
Tesco staff said one cashier fell to the floor in shock and had to seek medical help because he was so traumatised.
