Two men who held up a petrol station at knife-point are on the run from police.

The pair burst into Ansdell Filling Station, on Church Road, St Annes, wielding kitchen knives and demanded money.

They threatened the cashier before taking his iPhone and around £30 in cash during the terrifying raid at around 10pm on November 7.

Police, who did not release any details of the offence at the time, are now appealing for help to catch the pair.

Both of the suspects are described as white, around 5ft 8ins tall and of medium build. Both have local accents.

One wore a grey hooded top, grey tracksuit bottoms and black trainers.

The other wore a red bandana and a dark tracksuit with red colouring on it.

A Lancashire Police spokesman said: “Two men entered the service station near closing time. Both had kitchen knives and demanded cash from the cashier.

“They took the shop worker’s iPhone and a quantity of cash. The victim was not injured.

“The incident is still under investigation.”

Anyone with information should call police on 101.
