Two men have been charged in connection with an armed robbery at a Basingstoke nightclub.

Anthony Bermingham, 38, from London, and Ashley Flanagan, also 38, from Basingstoke, are accused of conspiracy to commit robbery.

The charges relate to a raid at the Wonderland venue just after 13:00 GMT on 25 February.

More than £10,000 in cash was stolen during the raid by robbers brandishing what was believed to be a handgun.

A male staff member at the club was tied up and threatened.

The pair were due to appear at Basingstoke Magistrates' Court on Friday.

Four others, two men, aged 33 and 44, and a woman aged 18, all from London, and a 44-year-old man from Basingstoke, who were arrested on suspicion of conspiracy to commit robbery, have been bailed until 30 July.
