A 17-year-old boy has been charged in connection with an alleged aggravated burglary in Mansfield which involved two men armed with a machete and a crowbar.
The teenager, who can't be identified for legal reasons, is due to appear at Nottingham Magistrates’ Court today (January 26) after he was charged with aggravated burglary.

No-one was injured and an 18-year-old man who was arrested on Sunday in connection with the burglary has been released on conditional bail.
