One of them walked up to the counter and asked for tobacco before removing a knife from his rucksack and threatened a staff member whilst making demands for cash.

The worker advised the man that there was no money in the till and the man then grabbed some tobacco and ran off along with his accomplice.

DC Benter from Lancaster CID said: “Thankfully the shop assistant wasn’t injured but is very shaken by the ordeal.

“If you recognise the men in these CCTV, please come forward and speak to us.

Anyone with information can call 101, quoting incident reference 103 of November 9.
