Guard shot in supermarket robbery
A security guard has been shot in the legs during an armed robbery at a Derbyshire supermarket.

Two men carrying handguns struck at the Tesco store, Heathcote Road, in Swadlincote, on Thursday afternoon.

The Securicor guard was shot in the legs by both men but his injuries are not said to be life-threatening.

The gunmen stole cash and escaped in a waiting black Vauxhall Signum, driven by a third man. The car was later found abandoned and on fire.

The vehicle had been left in Gresley Wood Road in nearby Church Gresley.
