Two masked thugs stole parcels from a Royal Mail depot in the week before Christmas.

The yobs, who were wearing black clothing with their faces covered, entered the loading bay area of the depot near Toxteth, Liverpool, at around 8.20am on Friday. The men targeted a worker who was putting parcels into a delivery van.

They took a number of the parcels before running to a silver Ford Transit van parked outside the depot.

The van, which was driven by a third man, has then left the area towards the city centre.

It was later found abandoned at the junction near Liverpool Docks, and the suspects were last seen running along a commercial street.

Detectives have launched an investigation into the circumstances and are appealing for anyone who has information to come forward, reports Liverpool Echo.

Residents living in the Toxteth and Brunswick areas are asked to check if their CCTV captured the robbery or the suspects driving away from the scene.

Detective Inspector Chris Saidi, of Merseyside Police, said: “We are urging anyone with information about this robbery to come forward to help our investigation. If anyone was in the vicinity of the depot at around 8.20am onwards and may have noticed something suspicious, please contact us.

“I am also appealing for drivers and residents in the surrounding areas who have CCTV and dashcam to please check your footage which may have captured the robbery and the van driving off.

“Anyone who witnessed the incident or with any information can contact us by DM via our social media desk on Twitter @MerseyPolice or Facebook ‘Merseyside Police Contact Centre’ with reference 22000924625. You can also contact the independent charity Crime stoppers anonymously, on 0800 555 111.”
