A 16-year-old in Germany made off with hundreds of euros after he held up a bank using a toy gun.

He was quickly apprehended when he fled by bicycle.

The teenager managed to pocket "a four-figure sum" after he stormed into a bank in the southern Bavarian town of Bad Fuessing.

He went into the bank yesterday brandishing a fake gun and shouted  "Hold-up!".

The boy then raced off on his bike, chased by a witness in a car.

He was apprehended by police several minutes later while trying to cross the border into Austria.
He surrendered to officers and admitted to the crime.
