A MILKMAN was robbed at gun point whilst making his deliveries in the Meldreth and Kneesworth area on Friday morning.

The man was approached by two males riding an off road motorbike as he stopped for a short break between Kneesworth Street and Chestnut Lane.

One of the men approached the driver's side window and, showing a dark coloured rifle, demanded money.

The second man took cash from a wallet inside the van.

The two men wore dark leather clothing, dark boots and dark full face crash helmets ad gloves.

Both men got back on the bike and headed towards Kneesworth.

Detective Inspector Simon Harding said: "We would like to hear from anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in the area or believes they may know who is responsible."
