A 19-YEAR-OLD man will appear before magistrates this morning charged with robbery and possession of an imitation firearm after an incident at the McColls newsagents in Sudbury.

Sean Barker, of Cornard Road, Sudbury was charged by police with two offences in relation to a robbery at the newsagents on Market Hill on Wednesday night.

No-one was hurt in the incident after a man pulled a replica gun on terrified shop workers and demanded they hand over a single packet of cigarettes.
