Police investigating a robbery at a petrol station have released CCTV images of a man they want to identify and speak to.
He went into the shop at Belgrave Service Station in Rayleigh Road, Leigh on Sea, at 9.25pm on Friday January 1, went behind the till and threatened a staff member with a knife.
He demanded money and stole several hundred pounds before running off.
The staff member was not hurt but, not surprisingly, was left shaken.
