Among the pounds 20,000 of guns taken from the Mayfair Gun Club in Bermondsey, which has 350 members, were .38 Smith and Wesson pistols and semi-automatic Mausers. Two men tied up a staff member at gunpoint after he opened the club at 10.40am on Saturday. Peter Dickson, club chairman, is offering a pounds 5,000 reward for information leading to a prosecution. The robbers, who were white, escaped in a tatty blue Ford Transit van driven by a third man, which headed east along Jamaica Road.
One was 6ft, 35 to 40, stocky with a chubby face, dark complexion with greasy skin and hair. He wore sunglasses, blue denim shirt and jeans. His accomplice was 5ft 9ins tall, 40 to 45, scruffy with a thin face.Reuse content
