CCTV images of an armed robbery at a Nottinghamshire shop have been released by police.

Two offenders, one possibly with a firearm, entered Nuthall Convenience Store, in Ash Crescent, Nuthall, late on 22 January and demanded money.

They escaped on foot with a quantity of cash from the till, leaving a member of staff "incredibly shaken".

Both were described as either black or of mixed race, in their late teens or early 20s, and had their faces covered.

Police said the robber with the suspected firearm was wearing a grey waterproof jacket with stripes down the sleeves and the hood up, black jogging bottoms, black gloves and black trainers with a thin sole.

The other offender, who was carrying a knife, was described as being 5ft 7ins to 5ft 9ins (1.70m to 1.75m) tall, wearing a dark blue hooded jumper with black stripes down the sleeves, dark blue tracksuit bottoms and black boots. He was also wearing thick brightly coloured gloves.

Det Insp Andrew Bateman, from Beeston CID, said: "This was a nasty incident which has left the staff member involved incredibly shaken.

"Officers are reviewing CCTV and carrying out house-to-house inquiries. We are determined to find these men and bring them to justice."
