. His attempt to rob the post office was foiled when staff refused to open the till, telling him it was on a time lock. Detectives identified Ifield after tracing the route he took as he fled the scene of each robbery. He also tried to rob a bank in Redbridge (Met Police) By examining extensive CCTV from buses, shops and tube stations, they were able to follow his movements and place him at all three venues at the times the raids took place. After his trial, he was sentenced to 16 years' imprisonment. PC Stefen Rule, from the Met’s Flying Squad, said: “Ifield has a long and serious offending history, including nine previous armed robberies. Each one will have caused a huge amount of distress to the innocent members of staff who were targeted. "I am pleased that he will no longer be able to pose a threat to the public. I hope that these convictions and the length of the sentence imposed by the court will be of some comfort to the victims and help alleviate the trauma they have experienced.” For more news and features about London directly to your inbox sign up to our newsletter here.
