Police are investigating a robbery at a food store in Northampton this morning.

Officers were called at 5.40am to the Tesco Express in Bordeaux Close, Duston.

Staff had been locked in a room while robbers made off with cash and cigarettes.

In September last year, two men - one armed with screwdriver - attempted to rob the same store but were scared off.

Anyone with information about this morning’s crime can call police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
