At 6.27am on Friday, May 15, the man walked into Tesco Express in Upper Shoreham Road with a silver handgun, threatened staff and grabbed a quantity of cash before running out and off down Eastern Avenue, police said.

The footage shows the man brandishing the weapon at a member of staff while she opened the till, and then helping himself to the contents while she had her hands in the air.

Detective Sergeant Andy Ricks said: "This was a terrifying incident and we are seeking the public's help in identifying the man in the CTTV. I am hoping that someone may recognise the distinctive beanie hat or the green jacket worn by the suspect.

"If you can help us in any way with our enquiries, please report online or call 101 quoting Operation Stafford."

Two men, aged 30 and 38, from Shoreham, were both arrested on suspicion of robbery and have been released on bail until June 12.
