Police appeal after Lincolnshire jewellery robbery

Police have appealed for information after a suspected armed robbery at a jewellery shop in Lincolnshire.

A man, believed to be aged 18 to 20 years old, attempted to rob the shop on High Street in Spilsby on Saturday morning, police said.

The robber, who was wearing blue jeans and a striped hooded top, fled from the shop at about 10:00 BST.

Lincolnshire police said witnesses told them they thought the man may have been carrying a weapon.

A police spokesman said it was not clear whether the robber escaped with any jewellery following the raid.

They advised the public not to approach the suspect but to contact police immediately.
