A spokesman for Nottinghamshire Police said nobody was injured but a large amount of cash was stolen.

He said: “One person has been arrested in connection with the incident and he is currently in custody.”

They are also trying to trace a witness, who was in the shop just before the incident took place, that could help with the investigation.
