Mark Pick, 41, of Lea Farm Road, Leeds, was arrested on 3 April and has been charged with robbery and possession of a firearm with intent to commit an indictable offence.

He is due to appear at Leeds Magistrates Court today.

The incident took place on 23 March when two cross-dressing robbers entered a post office on High Street, Boston Spa, dressed in women’s clothes, wigs and hats, with one being pushed in a wheelchair.

One was holding a shotgun that was discharged once outside and no-one was shot.

One post office worker was hit on the head with a crowbar and was taken to hospital.

A large amount of cash was also recovered from outside the post office and police believe the offenders probably left empty-handed.

James Martin Pick, 38, and from Willow Avenue in Clifford, has previously pleaded not guilty to the same charges and remains in custody.
