This CCTV shows the moment a masked robber wielding a knife was fought off by a brave shopkeeper - and a bottle of Lucozade.
Trader Veerasingam Senthooran grabbed the plastic bottle and threw it at the raider when he burst into his Ashford store.
The shop's film shows the would-be thief backing away as the 31-year-old reached for other objects to throw.
The robber then turned on his heels and ran out of the Stanhope Mini Market, in Speldhurst Close, Stanhope, empty handed.
