Detectives have made two further arrests in connection with an alleged robbery at a shop in Poole.

The incident happened at around 11.20am on Tuesday 6 November 2018 at St Mary's News on St Mary's Road.

It was reported that two men wearing scarfs around their faces entered the store and threatened members of staff with a weapon, believed to be a hand gun. It is not known if it was real or a replica.
