Armed raid at Northumberland fish and chip shop
A Northumberland fish and chip shop has been raided by an armed man with a similar description to suspected gunman Raoul Moat.
A man entered the shop in Astley Road, Seaton Delaval, near Blyth, with a gun at 2250 BST on Monday.
Moat allegedly shot his ex-girlfriend and killed her boyfriend on Saturday.
Police are not linking the raid with the hunt for Moat, but have not ruled out the possibility the two could be connected.
A police hunt involving a number of forces is under way for Moat, who is described by officers as 6ft 3in tall, white, with a large muscular build and very short or shaven blond hair.
He is on the run after allegedly shooting Samantha Stobbart, 22, and killing Chris Brown, 29, in Birtley, Gateshead.
A police officer was also shot in his patrol car in Newcastle on Sunday.
The man involved in the raid in Seaton Delaval is described as a 6ft tall white man, clean shaven, aged about 35 with a "muscular build" and "short sandy-coloured hair".
He was wearing jeans and a dark-coloured T-shirt.
He escaped on foot after demanding cash from members of staff.
Police have not given any indication of how much money was taken.
A Northumbria Police spokesman said: "Inquiries are at a very early stage - we don't know who the offender is."
No vehicle was seen at the scene of the robbery and no weapon has been recovered, police said.
