A man concealed his face before robbing a newsagents in Silver Road, Norwich, with a knife at about 6am today.

No-one was hurt during the raid but the offender made off with a quantity of cash.

It is believed that there were customers in the shop only moments before and a member of the public entered the store as the offender made his escape.

Police think it is likely the offender was seen either before entering the premises or after he left it.

The man was wearing a black woollen cap and a scarf concealing his face. He was white and in his late teens or early 20s. He was wearing a black sports top with white stripes down the sleeves, dark trousers and white trainers.
