Police are searching for witnesses following a suspected armed robbery at a Radlett Post Office on Tuesday.
Two men went into the shop in Battlers Green Drive at around 5pm on November 25.
While taking money from the counter, one of them pointed what is thought to be a handgun, which was hidden under his jacket, and made threats.
They demanded the safe be opened but left before this was complete.
A local 47-year-old who runs the Post Office was present at the time, along with his two young children, a shop assistant and a customer. None of them were injured during the incident.
Detective Sergeant Alex Warwick said: “This was a terrifying ordeal for all involved and a significant amount of money was taken.
“The two men had parked in nearby Orchard Close and walked or ran to and from the shop.
