Police are appealing to trace two men after a robbery at a Bamber Bridge shop on Sunday night.

Footage shows two men near Severn Drive, off Duddle Lane, following the incident at the Londis store.

A man entered the store around 8pm on Sunday (20 November) and bought a drink, and then left.

Police say a short time later he re-entered the shop with a second man.

One of the men has pointed either a knife or a screw driver at a shop worker and demanded the till be opened.

The victim opened the till and one of the men grabbed a bundle of cash. The second man demanded a bag be filled with cigarettes.

DC Katherine Clancy from Preston CID said: Thankfully the victim wasn’t hurt but has understandably been shaken up by this incident.

“I would ask anyone who recognises the men in hooded jumpers to come forward and speak to us.

“Similarly, if you have any information that could help us, please get in contact.”

The first male is described as white, aged between 16 and 20, around 5ft 9ins and of slim build. He was wearing a white hoodie.

The second man was black, around 30 years old, 6ft 1ins, of medium build and had a scar or mark on his face. He was carrying a white material bag and had a distinctive walk, swaying from side to side.

Anyone with information is asked to call police on 101 quoting incident reference 1256 of November 20th. Alternatively Crimestoppers can be contacted anonymously on 0800 555 111.
