Two men have been jailed for their part in a £10,000 raid on a nightclub.

A staff member was tied up and threatened with a handgun during the robbery at Wonderland in Basingstoke, Hampshire, on 25 February.

Anthony Bermingham, 39, from London, and Ashley Flanagan, 38, from Basingstoke, were found guilty of conspiracy to commit robbery.

They were jailed for 12 years each after a trial at Winchester Crown Court.

The robbery happened just after 13:00 GMT on 25 February.

Bermingham, of Wolseley Street, Bermondsey, and Flanagan, of Pinkerton Road, had both denied the charge.

Four people arrested earlier in the inquiry were released without charge.
