Police stock pictureAn armed robber made off with about £300 in cash after he held up a shop in Milton Regis.

The man had a small handgun when he walked into the Kent Mart store, in the High Street, just before 6.50pm yesterday.

It’s understood he pointed the weapon at a man who was working alone behind the counter before shouting at him three times to hand over the money.

When he eventually did, the raider demanded he hand over the mobile phone which was on the counter.

Once given to him, he smashed it before leaving the premises.

The alarm was raised when the shaken worker banged on the door of the flat above the shop and asked the man living there to call the police.

The offender was seen on CCTV before entering the shop wearing a grey hooded top with the word Oregon written on it.

When he carried out the robbery he was wearing a white crash helmet with a black motif on the back. He was also carrying a black and white Nike holdall.
He is described as white, 6ft 2ins and of heavy build.

Anyone with any information is asked to contact Det Con Donna Hopper by calling the non-emergency number 101 and quoting reference XY/037797/12.
