Two men have been arrested in connection with an armed robbery at a post office in a Lincolnshire village.

It comes after a man in a balaclava walked into the post office on Ferry Road, Fiskerton, near Lincoln, on Tuesday.

He threatened a member of staff with a handgun before making off with several thousand pounds in cash.

The men, aged 22 and 26, were detained by officers in Gainsborough and will be interviewed later.
