Police are hunting for an armed robber who held up a Great Yarmouth fish and chip shop while wielding a handgun.

The robber, who was wearing a balaclava, threatened a worker in the Fish 'n' Chick'n restaurant, at the top of Regent Road, at about 6pm tonight.

He demanded money from the male member of staff and took a quantity of cash from a safe. Nobody was hurt in the raid.

Norfolk police believe the robber got into the shop, which was closed at the time, through a back entrance. He made his escape from the back door.
