CCTV footage has captured the moment armed robbers pointed a gun at a Northampton shopkeeper who refused to hand over cash when they raided his store.

Bipin Patel was serving customers at his store in Ecton Brook when the three would-be robbers sprinted into the store and demanded he hand over money on the morning of May 2nd.

Instead of giving them the takings, Mr Patel ducked to the floor and managed to press the security alarm.

He's now posted CCTV footage of the raid online where it has been viewed by over 100,000 people.
