A Dartford bank robber called 999 to get advice on how to hand himself into the police, after stealing discontinued £20 notes.

Roy Sinclair was waiting for the bus to the South London police station when he made the call, calmly asking the handler how to go about the situation.

He has been jailed for five years and four months.
