Two shop assistants were threatened with a knife when two men burst into a Cornwall store.

They demanded money but could not get into the till and fled after grabbing a quantity of tobacco, leaving the assistants in a state of shock.

Both men wore ski masks during the robbery at the Nisa store in Highfield Road, Mount Hawke in Truro.

Police have now released CCTV footage of the incident eight days ago and appealed for the public's help.
