Police are investigating an armed robbery at Wickes in Mansfield this morning (Friday 19th July) in which staff were threatened with knives.

Three masked men broke into the DIY store on Chesterfield Road and threatened staff with the weapons.

They stole a mobile phone from a staff member but it is unclear at this stage what else was taken.

It happened at about 7.25am and the suspects fled the scene in a silver VW Golf.

The vehicle was abandoned on Kipling Street, Mansfield and the suspects made off on foot.

Officers are asking anyone who has information or who saw the vehicle to call 101.
