Detective Constable Lauren Byrne said: "If you noticed anything suspicious between 7pm and 8pm or were driving through Ampthill around Church Street and have dashcam footage of anyone acting suspiciously, you might be able to help us.

"We would also be interested in speaking to a female who enters the post office shortly before the incident took place, as she might be key to our investigation."
