Officers attended and carried out a search of the area. Following enquiries, a 27-year-old woman and two men, aged 39 and 37, were located and have been arrested on suspicion of robbery. All three – who are from the Bournemouth area – are currently assisting detectives with their enquiries.

Detective Sergeant Matt Cooke, of Bournemouth CID, said: “I am appealing to anyone who was in the area and saw any people or vehicles acting suspiciously to please get in touch.

“I would also urge anyone who may have captured any relevant footage on either a dashcam or their mobile phone to please contact Dorset Police.”
