'Hero' Customer tackles gunman on CCTV in Norwich shop

A "hero" customer who tackled a robber wielding an imitation firearm has told how he "rushed" the attacker.

Darren Baker's wife alerted him to the robbery, and he raced into the shop in Norwich to overpower the man.

His bravery was captured on CCTV, and he was praised by a judge at Norwich Crown Court.

Stephen Lawrence, 54, was jailed for 11 years for attempted robbery at the store in Drayton Road.
