A van was smashed and two people were assaulted in a robbery which police have been investigating.

“We have now arrested two suspects in relation to the offence and they remain in custody for questioning.

“This incident was very distressing for the delivery drivers. They were simply doing their job and to face this whilst taking a break is absolutely unacceptable.

“We are now pleased to have made these arrests and we hope this offers reassurance to people of just how committed and relentless our teams are in their investigation of reports.

“Our investigation remains ongoing.”
