A member of staff has been taken to hospital following a robbery at a convenience store in the New Forest.

Three men entered the Co-op store on Lyndhurst Road, Ashurst, early on Sunday morning and threatened the 69-year old woman.

She was treated in hospital for shock but has since been released.

Police called it a "distressing incident" and appealed for information about a dark-coloured hatch back car thought to have been involved.
