A 20-year-old woman has been arrested on suspicion of robbery and shoplifting at Musbury Garage.

The woman has since been released pending further enquiries relating to the incident on Saturday, March 28, at 6.36pm.

A woman is alleged to have used a wooden pole, believed to be a broom handle, to threaten a member of staff and demanded cash and cigarettes.

Sergeant Peter Trudgeon said: "We are expecting a positive outcome. We want to see justice being done. To go into a place, threatening to steal, is disgusting behaviour - particularly when there was a lone member of staff."
