A woman yesterday admitted carrying out a robbery in Norwich in which shop workers were threatened with a knife.

Kirsty Lacey, 37, of Throckmorton Yard, Norwich, admitted carrying out the robbery at the Spar store, in St Augustine's Gate, on April 3 when she appeared at Norwich Crown Court.

She denied an attempted wounding charge on the same date and this was accepted by the prosecution who asked that the charge lie on file.

The court heard that Lacey had a previous robbery conviction in 2002.

Judge Peter Jacobs adjourned the case until July 13 for reports, including one which will consider the danger Lacey poses to the public along with a psychiatric report.
