Staff at a Skegness loan shop were left shaken after an attempted armed robbery.

Armed officers were called to the Money Shop on Lumley Road in the town at about 10:00 BST.

Police said the man made threats to shop staff using a weapon before fleeing empty-handed. No-one was injured.

Lincolnshire Police said it was a standard reaction to send firearms officers to incidents of this nature.

The man is described as white, of slim build and was wearing a black and grey striped top, black jacket and black woolly hat.
