Cash and cigarettes were stolen during the raid at the BP petrol station on Birmingham New Road in Coseley, which happened in the evening of Remembrance Sunday last month.

CCTV images show the man, who was wearing a mask and hooded top, entering the forecourt shop and threatening a member of staff with a knife, before taking cash from the till and cigarettes from behind the counter.

The man was then seen running from the shop and into a vehicle which then sped away from the scene.

West Midlands Police has now urged anyone with information or dash-cam footage to get in touch.
