A masked man armed with a shotgun stormed into Elm Village Store near Wisbech and demanded money from the till last night.

He threatened a member of staff at around 7.50pm before leaving the scene, in Birch Grove, with about £300 in cash.

The man is described as being roughly 5’10” and having a local accent.

He was wearing a grey and white mask, dark blue hooded top and was carrying a sports bag.

Detectives are keen to speak to a woman who briefly entered the shop while the incident was happening and may have vital information.

Inspector Will Davis said: “This was a frightening experience for the victim; thankfully nobody was hurt.

“I’d urge anyone who was in the area at the time and may have information to contact us or Crimestoppers as a matter of urgency.”
