This is the moment an armed robber stormed into McDonald's and stole a box of promotional Monopoly cards.

The incident happened at around 2pm on Friday 23rd March at the branch on Coldharbour Lane in Hayes.

The suspect walked into the McDonalds store waving a knife at staff. He slid across the movable counter separating the customers from the kitchen, grabbed a box of promotional Monopoly cards and vouchers and left the restaurant with the box.

The stickers on the Monopoly cards can win a person prizes ranging from a holiday to a car to £100,000 in cash.
