The man grabbed cash before all three left.

Police are appealing for witnesses to the incident.

All three men were white, with short dark hair.

One of the men was wearing a light grey t-shirt, blue jeans and black trainers, the second was wearing a grey hooded top underneath a black jacket and blue jeans, and the third was wearing black jogging bottoms and white trainers.

Detective Constable Karin Peters, investigating, said: “The shop was quite busy at the time of the offence and I’m sure people would have witnessed what happened.
