Police are searching for two men after an attempted armed robbery at a post office earlier today.

The police were called at 11.42am to reports that two men were attempting to rob the post office in Livingstone Road, Gravesend, off Valley Drive.

A Kent Police spokeswoman said that it is not yet known if the men took anything.

This comes after another attempted armed robbery, just over a mile away, when a worker was assaulted at the Tesco Express in Valley Drive, Gravesend at the weekend.

Witnesses reported that a man entered through the back door of Tesco at about 6.25pm and threatened a worker with a knife on Saturday, December 10.

The police spokeswoman said: "At least two males entered the store.

"A member of staff was assaulted and suffered injuries.

"SECamb (South East Coast Ambulance Service) were called to treat the victim.

"The men covered their faces - it was reported the two white men wore pillow cases with eye holes cut out."

Two men have since been arrested in connection with this incident. The store was shut for several hours.
