A ginger-haired man with a lazy eye was part of a gang that held two people hostage while they stole a safe, police have said.

Kingston officers have released an efit of the man who they say was part of the gang which burgled a house in Robin Hood Lane, Kingston Vale on Wednesday, April 25 at 1pm.

Detectives say he was one of four men in their twenties who held two people hostage in a room while they stole a safe.

One of the victims was elderly.

They escaped with the safe in a black VW Tiguan, which is believed to have been stolen.
