Police have appealed for information after a robber used a distinctive Peppa Pig bag-for-life in a raid on a pub in York.

The man, who was wearing a balaclava, walked into the House of the Trembling Madness, on Stonegate, and threatened staff with a broken bottle.

He stole cigarettes, including rare Pueblo Classic cartons, before escaping on a bicycle.
