DETECTIVES are appealing for information following an armed robbery in Corringham.
Two men, one armed with a handgun, struck at the Total service station in Church Road, at about 9.35pm on Thursday. A member of staff was threatened with the gun and ordered to open the till. The thieves fled with a three-figure sum of cash, a quantity of cigarettes and scratch cards.
