BREAKING NEWS: Armed robbery at Mablethorpe Co-op store

ARMED thieves targeted the Mablethorpe Co-op foodstore in Seacroft Road this morning.

Police were called around 10.29am to the store to reports of a robbery, and it is believed a security worker was attacked while filling the ATM machine from the inside of the foyer.

Police say three men armed with weapons including a sledgehammer fled the scene in a black VW Golf which was later found abandoned.
