Two held over robbery bid at Old Basford petrol station

Two men have been arrested after an attempted armed robbery at a Nottingham petrol station.

Staff at Murco Service Station in Mill Street, Old Basford, were threatened by two men who demanded money at about 06:30 GMT on 4 November.

Officers believe one man had a knife and another carried a firearm.

Two 18 year olds were arrested at addresses in Basford on Tuesday and will be interviewed by detectives later, Nottinghamshire Police said.

None of the staff were injured in the attempted robbery and the men fled empty handed.
