Officers were called to the Tesco store in Barford Road after a fire alarm was set off. As customers returned to the shop a man was stopped by staff trying to steal alcohol worth more than £300.

He threatened them with a knife and ran off, throwing some of the stolen goods at them. He drove off in a blue Vauxhall Astra.
