Two men have been jailed for robbing the award-winning Parkfoot Garage, at West Malling, Kent.

At Maidstone Crown Court, Joshua Thomas and Kean Lee were told their sentences would have been six years, but because they admitted all the charges it was reduced to four, meaning they will be available for release after two years.

The two men robbed the Spar store at the site on Wednesday February 17, threatening staff before making off with about 1,400 in cash, cigarettes and alcohol.

Owner David Charman said: "We considered this to be a fair result, given the distress caused to my staff."
