Initially workers at Scissors salon thought the robbery in January was a practical joke.

But 42-year-old Darren Davies from Bartley Green then produced a large kitchen knife to threaten them.

However, he was caught just two hours later, when police were called to the nearby Balmoral pub following reports that a man had been seen with a knife protruding from his pocket and counting a large bundle of cash.

He was jailed for 30 months at Birmingham Crown Court.
