  1. Evidently a dark coloured estate car reversed into the bank and some items were taken. This information came from an eye witness. The registration of the car was taken, but no doubt it was stolen. One robber stayed in the car while the money was stolen.

  2. West Midlands Police have made four arrests for the HSBC – Balsall Common job yesterday.
