A taxi driver was threatened at knifepoint in a late-night robbery in Norwich.

The driver, aged in his 50s, was parked in a blue Skoda in Bull Close Road at 5.30am on Monday morning when he was approached by two knife-wielding men.

After being threatened, the victim got out of the car which was then stolen by the robbers. They were then seen to pull over to pick up a female close by.

The car was last seen passing Norwich Airport heading out of the city.

A Norfolk police spokesman said the victim was not injured during the incident and enquiries are ongoing.
