A takeaway driver has been left shaken after being robbed while working in Lowestoft.

The driver, a man in his 30s, parked his vehicle and went to an address in the Bramble Green area to deliver food.

However the resident hadn't ordered anything and moments later, as the driver left the address, he saw three men approaching him.

Two of them appeared to be holding knives and the victim was then threatened and searched.

A silver iPhone, a small amount of cash and the food were stolen before all three ran off.

The delivery driver was unhurt but was left shaken by the events.

The incident happened between 9-9.30pm last Friday night (15 January) and the men were described as white, in their late-teens to mid-20s and were wearing dark hooded tops with the hoods up.
