A man robbed a west Norfolk petrol station at knifepoint before getting away.

Officers were called to the Gulf in Swaffham Road, Ickburgh, just after 3.10pm on July 20.

A man had entered the petrol station pulling what appeared to be a knife from a rucksack and then demanded cash and cigarettes from the shop worker.

Nobody was harmed during the incident.

Police are keen to hear from motorists travelling on the A1065 between Swaffham and Mundford with dashcam footage before or during the incident.
