Man in raid with hammer in petrol station at Wrotham Heath

A hammer-wielding robber raided a west Kent petrol station - making off with cash and cigarettes.

The man demanded money from the attendant before leaping over the counter at Esso Service Station in London Road, Wrotham Heath at around 10.55pm last night.

He had used the hammer to force the till open and swipe it.

The suspect, who headed off in the direction of the Royal Oak pub, is described as white, 6ft 3ins, and wore a waterproof jacket with the hood up and his face covered by a dark cloth.
