The two 19-year-olds charged with the attempted robbery of £25,000 from a security guard at Sainsbury’s in Huntingdon on January 27, Vimal Jadeja and Nathan Murray-Williams, both from Ilford, have been remanded in custody until their next court appearance.

At Huntingdon Crown Court on Friday (February 4), they spoke only to confirm their names, and will enter pleas to the charges on April 13. Murray-Williams is also charged with assault.
