Cash taken in Sunderland Spar armed robbery

A robber armed with what is believed to be a gun escaped with cash after threatening staff at a shop in Sunderland.

Officers said the robber targeted the Spar shop in Ryhope Road at about 2215 GMT on Sunday night.

Police said the firearm may have been an imitation and that staff were unhurt but left shaken by their ordeal.

Northumbria Police want to speak to a man who was outside the shop on his bike and may have witnessed the raid.
