TERRIFIED couple Linda and Colin Buttle have vowed to close their post office forever after robbers struck twice in one day and for the third time in just over three weeks.

In the latest attacks at the couple's post office in Little Stonham, which is run by their daughter, Sarah Buttle, two men smashed the door down just after 11am on Saturday and made off with a bag of money.

But this was not the end of their nightmare. At around 10.15pm that same day they got a call to say that robbers were once again at the post office. This time they got into the adjoining house and caused damage throughout.
