Three men have been arrested in connection with an armed robbery in Bury St Edmunds.

A police operation was carried out in Kings Lynn, in Norfolk, earlier during which three men were arrested on suspicion of conspiring to commit armed robbery.

The men, aged 23, 26, and 30 have been taken to the Kings Lynn police investigation centre.

Police are continuing to investigate the robbery which happened on Tuesday and are urging anyone with information to contact Bury St Edmunds CID on 101, quoting reference number BU/14/3256.

Alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
