Police are appealing for witnesses after an attempted armed robbery at a store in Haverhill.

The incident occurred at around 7.35am this morning at the convenience store in Primrose Hill.

Two men wearing masks entered the shop and one was brandishing a gun, described as a pistol.

They attempted to steal alcohol from a fridge but left empty-handed.

The men are both described as white and aged between 18 and 20.

The first man was around 6ft 1in tall, wearing a red hooded top and grey tracksuit bottoms, with a handkerchief over his face. The second man is described as around 5ft 5in tall wearing a black jacket and a black balaclava.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Bury St Edmunds CID on 101, quoting reference CAD 42 of 9/5, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
