A police helicopter and tracker dogs were used in a hunt for a masked raider who held up a petrol station at knifepoint.
The robber, wearing a balaclava and wielding a large hunting knife, crept up behind a 20-year-old male cashier as he was sweeping the floor at the Texaco site in Little Bowden, Leicestershire.The attendant – who did not want to be named – said: “He marched me behind the counter and told me to hand over the money from the till. I emptied the cash into a carrier bag, and he ran off. It was very frightening.” The raider escaped and police are still appealing for witnesses.

Has the Government's shock announcement to bring forward the ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel-powered vehicles - as well as hybrids - to 2035 or even earlier caused concern and disruption to your future forecourt development plans?
