A MAN sat in his van had a Rolex watch stolen from him during an armed robbery in Skelmersdale.

It happened around 1.45am on Friday, November 12 when the victim was preparing his work van on Willow Drive, ready for the morning after.

While sat inside the driver seat, he was approached by two men wearing balaclavas, who produced what is believed to be a small handgun.

They are then believed to have run off in the direction of Kiln Lane after stealing a Rolex watch (thought to resemble the one pictured above) from the victim.

Skelmersdale Police said: “If you saw what happened or know anything about this incident at all, please get in contact with us. Similarly, if you have been offered a Rolex watch for sale like the one pictured, please let us know.”

Information can be reported on 101 quoting incident reference 0084 of November 12th or by emailing
