This man is being hunted after a Cheriton shop worker was threatened with what is believed to have been a gun.

A raider targeted the One Stop store, in Cheriton Road, after pretending to buy something at the till.

The man fled with an undisclosed amount of money before heading towards Folkestone town centre.

Now detectives have released CCTV images of a man they want to speak to in connection with the raid on the convenience store.

The raider was wearing a black hooded jacket and black tracksuit trousers, with a white Adidas stripe down the leg. 

He is described as clean-shaven, stocky and with a deep voice in a "local accent".
