Shop staff were threatened by a robber wielding a knife - before he fled with a cash till containing around £300.

Shocked workers at Costcutter in Fleetdale Parade, Dartford were challenged by the man wielding a long knife at around 8.45pm on Wednesday, January 22.

He then grabbed the till from the counter and carried it out of the store, where he met another offender before fleeing towards Fleet Avenue.
