A man has been found guilty of carrying out an armed raid which went wrong when the store owner chased him away with his own knife.

Lee Prouse, 24, had wielded a knife while robbing Knowle Garage, near Braunton, Devon, last November.

Hooded robbers Prouse and Jamie Latta, 27, swung a meat cleaver at store owner Trude Mian, 65, but only got away with £60 when she chased them out.

Prouse was found guilty of robbery at Exeter Crown Court. Latta previously admitted his part in the raid.

The raid, captured on CCTV, was described by police as "despicable" and a "particularly nasty incident".
