A man has been arrested on suspicion of armed robbery.

Armed police officers were called to a knife-point robbery at Temple Stores in Stopford road last Thursday.

The robber had threatened the store owner, before stealing cash from the till at around 19:40. 

Police say the owner was unhurt, but left “badly shaken” by the robbery.

A 31-year-old man has now been arrested in relation to the incident, and remains in police custody.
