Man and woman arrested over Shropshire armed robberies

A man and a woman have been arrested following two bank robberies, a shop raid and a car-jacking.

The pair, both from Telford, were arrested on suspicion of robbery and both have now been bailed until April while investigations continue.

Lloyds Bank, in High Street, Madeley, was targeted on Monday; Barclays Bank, in Shifnal, was raided on Friday, along with One Stop, in Market Drayton.

A woman had her car taken from her in Tudor Way, Shifnal.

A 34-year-old man was held on suspicion of robbery in connection with the Lloyds Bank attack and a 33-year-old woman arrested on suspicion of robbery in connection with all three incidents.
