A third man, aged 41, has now been detained on suspicion of the same offence.

Detective Sergeant Al Prentice, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “Members of the community were understandably concerned by this raid on a well-known high street store so I hope our robust response has provided reassurance.

“Brazen criminality of this type will not be tolerated and this third arrest is an important step in our ongoing investigation.

“We still want to hear from people who witnessed the robbery and have not yet spoken to an officer as they could have vital information.

“Anyone who has any relevant CCTV, dashcam or Ring doorbell footage should also contact officers on 101, quoting incident number 489 of 8 September 2023, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.”
