Got some info from John (shop owner) today
4 males in balaclavas armed with knives. Tried to get money from securicor man, but he had already put it through counter slot. They tried to get into post office and cut one of PO staff who was working just outside in the process. John managed to sound the silent alarm and then the girl behind PO counter sounded the audible one and scared them off. They didn't manage to get anything.
