A quantity of cash was stolen in a robbery at Kerry's Mini Market in Stanley Street at about 8.50pm yesterday .

A woman shop assistant was in the store when two males entered wearing motorcycle helmets on with the visors down. She told them to take them off but one jumped over the counter and pushed her to the floor.

The second male then jumped over the counter and both demanded cash. They then opened the till and took notes from it before making off.

The two offenders were seen getting onto a white coloured trials bike, with red bits on it, and riding away. They are described as being around 5ft 8ins - 5ft 10ins tall, of medium build, wearing dark coloured crash helmets with blacked-out visors, and dark coloured clothing.

The lady shop assistant was left extremely shaken, but was uninjured.

Police are asking anyone who was in the area at the time, anyone who may have seen the trials bike, or anyone with information about the offenders to call Lowestoft police on 01986 835300, or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
