Armed robbers hijacked an Amtrak lorry containing approx. 300 Evesham PCs, late Friday afternoon.

The driver was held-up at gunpoint at Tewkesbury, Gloucester, near the M5 turnover. He was kidnapped and bundled into the back of a car, then driven down the M5. He was released badly shaken, but not hurt.

All the PCs were destined for customers (as opposed to showrooms), except one: a review machine for PC Format.

The robbers will have varying degrees of difficulty disposing the Evesham kit. The monitors are unbadged, the notebooks have removable badges, but the desktops have the Evesham logo printed on the box. ®
