Sword-wielding robbers raid shop
Two men have robbed a Nottingham shop after threatening staff and customers with a sword.

The robbers, who covered their faces with scarves, forced staff into the back room of Valley Farm Stores in Bulwell before stealing cash.

As they left the shop, they shouted to a group of youths standing outside to "help themselves" and a number of items of food were also stolen.

Police have asked anyone who may have witnessed the robbery to contact them.

The men are described as aged between 16 and 20, 5ft 8in to 5ft 10in tall and both were wearing sports clothing.
