Staff have been left traumatised after the Tesco store in Heath Street was the victim of a suspected armed robbery this morning.
Officers were called around 6:45am after a member of staff reported being threatened by a man with a gun demanding cash.
The suspect - a white male, six feet tall and wearing a green hoody - fled the scene in the direction of Hampstead station.
A female member of staff in her 40s has been left traumatised after she had what is thought to have been a gun put to her head.
Managers at the store - which is closed while the police continue their investigation - say they believe they are missing around £1,400.
