The man, who does not wish to be named, told police he noticed a man on the other side of the road. As he got into the taxi and placed his moneybag in the doorwell, he heard the man approaching over his gravel drive.

The robber fled with the moneybag, which contained a significant amount of cash, along Norwich Road towards the town centre. He is described as 6ft tall, 25-35 years old and wearing a green polo shirt and blue jeans.
