A shop worker was left "very shaken" following a robbery at a Suffolk Co-op store last night.

Police are appealing for witnesses or information after the incident at the Co-op in Church Street, Eye, which happened around 8.50pm.

Two offenders entered the back of the business premises and approached a woman shop worker in the office, instructing her to open the safe.

The woman complied with the demand and the suspects stole a quantity of notes and coins from the safe which they put into a JD sports bag before fleeing the scene on foot.

Police said that although nobody was hurt during the incident, the shop worker was left very shaken as a result.

The suspects were described as a man and possibly a woman who were both wearing face coverings.

Witnesses, or anybody who saw anything suspicious around the time above, are asked to call police on 101, quoting reference 25263/18.

Alternatively, call the charity Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555111.
