TWELVE people were treated in hospital after a gang sprayed staff and customers with ammonia during a raid on a post office in Kingstanding, West Midlands. The three robbers, who drove a stolen Land-Rover through the side of the building before squirting the liquid indiscriminately with water pistols, escaped with pounds 100,000.
