Charges over Grantham cash-and-carry kidnap and robbery

Four people have appeared in court charged with the kidnap of a Nottinghamshire shop worker and robbery of the store where he worked.

Three men and one woman were charged with abducting the man from his home in Keyworth on 3 November.

They were also accused of robbing a Booker cash-and-carry in Grantham, Lincolnshire later that day.

Nottingham magistrates remanded them in custody to appear at the city's crown court on 26 April.

The defendants include Andra Hoyland, 28, of Northampton Road, Kettering, and Richard Loveridge, 19, of Ecton Lane Park, Great Billing, both in Northamptonshire.

The pair face a third charge of theft of a Nissan Navara from Warwickshire.

Martin McBrien, 25, of Crow Lane, Little Billing, Northamptonshire, and Sonia Drury, 30, of Edgerley Drain Road, Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, are charged with handling the vehicle.
