A car was deliberately driven at a security worker as part of an attempted cash-in-transit robbery, according to police.

The G4S employee ran into a petrol station during the incident at a Tesco store on the Wrekin Retail Park in Telford in Shropshire, at about 8.40am this morning.

It's believed the car was parked near the petrol station for up to an hour before the attempted robbery.

Nothing was stolen and the car then drove off in the direction of the Ketley Brook roundabout.
