Portslade off-licence robbed at knifepoint

More than £1,000 has been stolen from an off-licence in Sussex by robbers armed with a large knife.

Two men entered the store in Valley Road, Portslade, just before it was due to close at 2200 GMT on Sunday.

Two members of staff were threatened before the robbers fled with £1,100 and two bottles of whisky.

Police said the workers were shaken but unhurt and the robbers made off on foot along The Crossway and into Southdown Road.

The first suspect is white, of a stocky build, and had a distinctive Liverpudlian accent.

He was wearing a black coat with the hood pulled tight around his face, black tracksuit bottoms and black and white Nike Air Max Classic BW trainers.

He was carrying a large kitchen knife with a plastic-looking handle.

The second suspect is white and wore a North Face hooded jacket with a small burgundy coloured logo on the back right shoulder, a white scarf, black Adidas tracksuit bottoms, black trainers, and black gloves.
