Raids on Snax 24 sites

Police are appealing for witnesses after armed robbers struck at two Snax 24 sites in apparently unrelated incidents.

A knife-wielding robber targeted the Snax 24 on Ormesby High Street, Middlesbrough, at 1.30pm on March 20 and escaped with a small amount of cash, cigarettes and alcohol.

In the second incident staff delivering cash to Snax 24 on Pedmore Road in the Brierley Hill area of Dudley were threatened by armed thieves just after 6.30am on March 19.

Two men armed with hammers threatened the delivery staff before fleeing empty handed.

Corsa KOs Aston Martin

An Aston Martin DBS has been wrecked by an out-of-control pink Corsa at the Kingshill Esso garage in Swindon.

The owner of the Aston Martin was filling his car when the driver of the Corsa lost control going round a roundabout, shot across the forecourt, and smashed into the side of it, shunting it into a petrol pump.
