Frightening robberies on consecutive lunchtimes in Blackwell and Barnt Green led police to draft in specialist “reassurance patrols” to the villages.

Blackwell Post Office was hit by an armed robbery on October 20, then the following day a Securicor van was robbed outside Lloyds Bank, in Hewell Road, Barnt Green.

Inspector Dave Shaw said: “Officers will be carrying out high visibility patrols to provide reassurance and will also be carrying out roadside checks on vehicles.”
