A BAR worker was today threatened and then tied up by two robbers who stole a quantity of cash from a pub.

The incident happened at the Old Millars public house on Felixstowe seafront at about 12.45am.

A member of staff had been inside the pub in Undercliff Road West when he heard the sound of a door opening and went to investigate.

As he got near the front door of the premises, a man suddenly rushed towards him. He was forced behind the bar, where he was thrown to the ground and threatened. He was then tied up.

A second robber then appeared and the two men stole a quantity of cash before fleeing. Afterwards, the worker managed to leave the pub to raise the alarm.

A police spokesman said the staff member was "very shaken" and shocked but was not injured. No weapons were seen.
