A car was stolen in an armed robbery outside a village church on Wednesday – and police have today appealed for witnesses.
Police said the incident happened between 1.15pm and 1.45pm, when a man and woman in the church car park in Weston’s Church Lane were approached by two men.
One of the men had a knife, and threatened one of the victims before taking property from him. The other person took the woman’s handbag from the car. The pair then got into the vehicle and drove off.
Nobody was injured during the robbery.
Police said the robbers were described as black men aged between 20 and 25.
