Witnesses continue to give evidence over robbery

Witnesses are continuing to give evidence at the trial of a Holsworthy couple charged with robbing a North Devon Garage.

The garage in Braunton was robbed in November last year, when two masked intruders threatened the owner with a meat cleaver and a kitchen knife.

Lee Prowse and Jordanne Morris both deny robbery.

Grandmother used knife to chase two masked raiders

A grandmother has told a jury how she took a knife off a robber and used it to chase two masked raiders out of her shop.

Sixty-five-year-old Trude Mian was about to close the store near Braunton in North Devon when two men armed, with a meat cleaver and kitchen knife burst in and demanded money.

She told Exeter Crown Court she thought the raid last November was a belated Halloween joke until she saw the weapons.

Dramatic CCTV footage has been shown to the jury.
