A shopkeeper has praised police for making a quick arrest after his store was targeted by a robber armed with a gun.

Mohammed Khader, who fled war-torn Iraq, believes the weapon brandished at the friend looking after his Lifestyle Express shop on Rockingham Road, Wheatley, on Wednesday was real.

Detectives are still searching for a second man in connection with the robbery and another raid just over four hours later at the Beckett Road News shop, only a few hundred yards away. Mr Khader, aged 39, had just gone to collect his children from school and left friend Showan Hameed, 42, behind the counter.
