Police are appealing for information after an armed robbery at a New Mills shop yesterday (Sunday).

A man wearing black biker leathers and a red, black and white helmet and carrying a baseball bat, entered the Best One store on Albion Road just after 6.30am. Two other men, wearing dark clothing and balaclavas, then came into the store and went behind the counter, where they stole cigarettes before leaving. The shop staff were unhurt during the incident.

Police said it was unclear whether the three men fled on foot or in a vehicle.

Anyone with information should call Derbyshire police on 101 or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
