An Eastbourne shop’s been robbed at knifepoint.

A man went into Best One in Seaside just before 9pm on Sunday (29 January) and demanded the money from the till, flashing what appeared to be a knife under his jacket. He was given over £150 from the shop assistant before making off towards Beach Road.
